Indigenous nations are on the frontline of the climate crisis of the 21st century, as the first peoples to experience climate change and the communities who feel it most deeply, with cultures and economies that are vulnerable to climate-related catastrophes. Yet Native peoples around the Pacific Rim are also demonstrating historical resilience in the face of adversity, developing responses to climate change that can serve as a model for Native and non-Native communities alike. Asserting Native Resilience presents a powerful anthology of writings from Canada, the US, and New Zealand that explore indigenous responses to the climate crisis from a rich variety of perspectives.
