Title

Indigenous Peoples and Climate Change: Humanistic Explorations of Cultural Resilience

Abstract

In this essay, we will discuss the lessons that we have learned in a course titled "Indigenous Peoples and Climate Change" regarding Indigenous efforts and epistemologies to cope with stresses and plights induced by global climate change. Primarily informed by humanistic perspectives, we examine how Indigenous peoples, especially those of North America, process climate change through their cultural values and social priorities, with a particular focus on human emotions or feelings associated with their homeland, which often called sense of place or belonging, in contrast to the abstract concepts that originate from the natural sciences.
