An Indigenous-led Initiative
The Indigenous Climate Hub is an Indigenous-led project and national online platform for First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, communities, and organizations to Learn, Share and Connect. The idea for the national platform was first proposed by First Nations climate change leaders at the inaugural Indigenous Climate Change Adaptation Gathering (ICCAG), which took place February 13-14, 2018 in Gatineau, Quebec.
Who Created the IndigenousClimateHub.ca?
The Indigenous Climate Hub was created by Okwaho Equal Source, an Indigenous consultancy and design thinking firm, headquartered in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, Ontario. Okwaho Equal Source facilitated the ICCAG 2018 and ICCAG 2019 and built and designed the Indigenous Climate Hub website and online network. The Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER) was instrumental in the initial content generation and curation of climate change information for the creation of the website. This project was financially supported by the First Nation Adapt Program, Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC).
What Is The Purpose Of This Website?
The purpose of the Indigenous Climate Hub is to provide helpful resources and information on climate change, and to provide a space to share resources, information, and impactful climate change stories from Indigenous perspectives. The website is updated regularly, and we invite First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities and organizations to submit articles for our blog.
