Description
 
Scientific and policy literature on climate change increasingly recognizes the vulnerabilities of indigenous communities and their capacities for resilience. The role of gender in defining how indigenous peoples experience climate change in the U.S. deserves more attention. Advancing climate change threatens the continuance of many indigenous cultural systems that are based on reciprocal relationships with local plants, animals, and ecosystems. These are gendered in many indigenous communities. The coupling of climate change with settler colonialism is the source of unique vulnerabilities. At the same time, gendered knowledge and gender-based activism and initiatives may foster climate change resilience. This literature synthesis builds an understanding of how gendered indigeneity may influence climate change vulnerability and resilience in indigenous communities in the U.S. This is a print on demand report.
