In the U.S., most Native tribes relocated to the country's least desirable lands, which have limited resources and infrastructure to buffer the impacts of climate change. In the Southwest, for instance, the Navajo Nation faces a severe water shortage as prolonged drought intensified by climate change further limits access to clean water. In Oklahoma, Cherokee's heirloom crops are becoming harder to grow, threatening their food security and cultural heritage.

    Indigenous knowledge contributes significantly to climate crisis solutions, thus it should be utilzed effectively.

      It is greatly agreed upon that indigenous people have a vast knowledge on environmental conservation so why are we reluctant to tap into this resource?
