Climate change has posed a threat to Indigenous communities for years, and climate activism from an indigenous perspective has brought the issue closer to the fore in recent years. When the Dakota Access Pipeline Project of 2016 resulted in a mass mobilization to protect the Indigenous land and the Indigenous Water Protectors, the International Indigenous Youth Council was formed to advocate for land protection and Indigenous Peoples’ human rights. In this program, we will learn more about Indigenous climate activism, and about how climate change affects Indigenous lands.
