Aanji-bimaadiziimagak o’ow aki: The World is Changing

Speakers:  Hannah Panci, Climate Scientist, Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission and Illeana Alexander, Tribal Climate Adaptation Specialist, Great Lakes Indian FIsh and Wildlife Commission

Climate change is affecting beings (species) in the upper Midwest Ceded Territories with which Ojibwe people have maintained relationships for centuries. As climate change continues, the ability of tribal members to exercise their off-reservation treaty rights will be increasingly impacted. Aanji-bimaadiziimagak o’ow aki, the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission’s vulnerability assessment, weaves together Traditional and Scientific Ecological Knowledge to examine the climate change vulnerability of 68 beings in the Ceded Territories by the mid-21st century. The assessment is meant to help GLIFWC’s member tribes and their partners prepare for upcoming changes and to help them care for those who take care of us.
