Climate change is seen as a modification of the weather caused by the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. This release changes the atmosphere's makeup, which marks a change in daily weather and a higher occurrence of hurricanes, floods, and tsunamis. The impact of climate change is expected to affect all people living on earth. Because of their close relationship with their environment, indigenous peoples are the first to be affected by climate change. This presentation explores how indigenous peoples constantly track changes in their surrounding environment by comparing historical and present events. And how learning from them can help us to adopt resilient strategies.
