For Indigenous peoples climate change is not a political slogan but an inescapable reality of their daily life

"Refusing to become mere victims, Indigenous peoples are a growing creative force behind local, regional, and global responses to the threat of climate change."

Listen...with your heart.

Thanks Cal.

You don't have to go very far Mr. & Mrs. Canada. Take a visit and talk to the indigenous peoples who live around the tar sands project.

We should of left them well alone! Interfering with the Indigenous tribes and having no respect for our planet will all come around to bite us on the behind !

If the Native Americans had been left in charge, the Earth in North American would not be in such bad shape. Thanks Cal.

If we could just go back to the way the N.A.s lived, we would stop a lot of the pollution today! They knew to treat Mother Earth as a living, feeling being! Take only what you need! Leave the rest to flourish and grow more and let others have a chance, instead of hoarding and raping the Earth!!

If we would all follow the old rules of North American Indians, our planet, environment, etc. would not be in that dire state how it is right now.

It's time to listen to these people and not politicians and big business. These people tell the truth. The others don't.
