Indigenous Peoples and Environmental (In)Justice

The Indigenous Peoples and Environmental Justice (IEJ) Project seeks to understand how Indigenous knowledge of the natural environment can help us respond to climate change. Engaging with youth, Elders, and other knowledge-holders, the research is Indigenous-led, and investigates what a self-determined future looks like for Indigenous communities and peoples.
