Climate change is an issue that threatens the traditional way of life for all people in Eeyou Istchee. In response the Cree Nation of Waskaganish has created this short video as a call to action for its people.
This project adapted a participatory approach, that included the training of a local research and video team, interviews with community members, two stakeholder meetings and a community screening event. The findings and recommendations that resulted from this process are also presented in a written version of our climate change adaptation plan. Our hope is that these outputs may guide our community members as well as other Cree communities to start planning and implementing responses that will help to lower the risks associated with present and future climate change. This project was project managed by the Cree Nation Government and the Cree Nation of Waskaganish. It was delivered by InsightShare with the financial support of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada.
