Indigenous Approaches to the Ethics of Knowledge Exchange

Indigenous peoples are among the most vocal advocates of climate justice globally. One key dimension of this movement is Indigenous efforts to make climate science more multicultural and equitable. The presentation will outline a range of efforts Indigenous peoples have undertaken, especially in the North American context, to create greater awareness of their own knowledge systems’ contributions to how we understand climate change and create better opportunities for climate scientists to work productively as part of Indigenous peoples’ climate change planning efforts. One of the achievements of these efforts has been to create an Indigenous approach to the ethics of intercultural knowledge exchange.
