WITNESSING CLIMATE CHANGE

April 18—6:00 pm8:00 pm

On April 18, join us for a screening and film panel exploring how Arctic Indigenous peoples have battled against climate change through films and other media from the perspective of Free, Prior and Informed Consent.

Arctic Indigenous peoples have a rich storytelling tradition that is still vivid and active. The stories have played an essential role in maintaining sustainable living in the Sámi and other Indigenous people’s traditional living areas — by being in charge of their narratives, these communities create a new future for their peoples. That’s why all Indigenous peoples must have the ultimate right to tell their own stories about climate change in the Arctic tipping points, including ice caps melting, permafrost collapsing, ocean changes and vanishing of the snow.

In today’s program, participants will discuss these topics and more. Speakers will be discussed closer to the date; please check back for more details on the film screening and panelists.
