Northern Arizona University (NAU) : Tribes and Climate Change
|Name||Northern Arizona University (NAU) : Tribes and Climate Change|
|Project Purpose||Earth's climate is changing as a result of human practices-that fact is no longer in dispute. Climate change is impacting people and ecosystems around the world. What does this mean for tribes and Native American communities who have for centuries relied on the bounty of the land and sea to sustain them?
On this website we provide information and resources tailored to helping Native people gain a better understanding of climate change and its impacts on their communities. Here you'll find basic climate-change information; profiles of tribes in diverse regions of the U.S., including Alaska, who are coping with climate change impacts; audio files of elders discussing the issue from traditional perspectives; and resources and contacts you can use to develop climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. Soon we'll also provide an open forum where you can share your ideas and views on climate change with others.
This organization operates in Colorado.
