What We Do

Our heartwork is in the success and health of Indigenous communities and uplifting the knowledge we hold.

Indigenous Climate Action’s (ICA) goal is to empower our communities and inspire Indigenous peoples to take climate action. Our work focuses on four main areas:


  1. Gatherings -  By hosting gatherings of Indigenous peoples to discuss how climate change is impacting local lands and waters. We are working hard to build a network of Indigenous communities, nations, and organizations taking real action on climate change. Bringing people together in person and online will help to grow the land-based climate movement. Visit our Toolkit page to learn more.

  2. Amplifying Voices - ICA is committed to developing climate action and climate solutions by Indigenous peoples for Indigenous peoples. We centre our inherent rights, knowledge, and worldview within climate change discussion. See Stories of Resilience and New and Blogs for more on our Indigenous-led media.

  3. Producing Resources - For Indigenous peoples, by Indigenous peoples. Indigenous peoples hold unique knowledge that can be used to build solid solutions for climate change. Sharing stories from the ground is one of the most powerful ways that we can inform and inspire others to build climate solutions. Indigenous voices and values need to be elevated, and we aim to do just that through ICA’s media and toolkit projects.

  4. Supporting Indigenous sovereignty - ICA supports Indigenous communities in making decisions that affect us and our well-being. This is what sovereignty means to us -- the right to decide what’s best for our people and territories. See some of our partnering communities on the Support ICA page.
