From our friends at NDN Collective:
Curated, edited and produced by NDN Collective's Climate Justice campaign and published by Loam. Required Reading is a roadmap that hones in on why Indigenous peoples must lead through the heart of the climate crisis.
As the recent IPCC report highlights, we are on the brink of ecological collapse, yet we know that Indigenous communities continue to hold key insights into how to mitigate environmental destruction. Required Reading: Climate Justice, Adaptation and Investing in Indigenous Power is both a road map and a call to action that illuminates the linkages between centering Indigenous leadership and repairing our fractured world.
The book features in-depth essays from climate experts around the world, presenting personal stories and analyses on subjects ranging from the continued U.S. military occupation of Hawaiʻi, to the fight for food sovereignty on the Yukon River, to the growing Land Back movement, to the link between the climate and MMIWR+ crises, to the devastating effects of mining for lithium in the Salar de Atacama, and much more.
NDN Collective is an Indigenous-led organization dedicated to building Indigenous power. Through organizing, activism, philanthropy, grantmaking, capacity-building, and narrative change, we are creating sustainable solutions on Indigenous terms.
