Context
Due to climate change, indigenous communities are faced with changes to longstanding cultural traditions. Traditional practices such as dance, ceremonies, and material culture are often tied to relationships with the natural world. Across the globe, people are using new technologies for hunting and subsistence strategies. Many communities are now actively engaged in policy discussions with local governments and organizations such as the United Nations. Community members today often use cultural items such as headdresses, face paint, and bows for protests and political action in addition to traditional use.
