Canadian Indigenous peoples are likely to be the first and most severely affected by climate change because of their dependence upon, and close relationship with, the environment. Concerns about land suitability, local food economies, and safe travel mean that Canadian Indigenous peoples face serious challenges now and in the future. This course looks at the role Indigenous peoples play in several Canadian ecosystems and how they are responding to climate change in creative ways, strengthening the resilience of their environment.
