Disappearing habitats and shrinking biodiversity are having grave and irreversible consequences for the world’s Indigenous people. Dr. Priscilla Settee has been working with Indigenous trappers in the North to explore the ways that climate change is impacting their livelihoods, food systems and environments. In this talk, Dr. Settee will present the findings of her research, highlighting the immense knowledge and unique worldviews of her Indigenous research partners and bringing forward their broader messages to humanity. She will also showcase alternate approaches to climate adaptation posed by Cree and other Indigenous peoples, and explore ways that research and development can support those approaches.
This is a partnership event with Indigenous Research Support Initiative.
