Indigenous resilience


Our Resilience

“In 20 years, I will be definitely speaking my language. I will definitely be tanning caribou hyde every summer. I will definitely be teaching my kids how to thrive off the land. People tend to say that we survived a really really harsh environment by living in the high Arctic. We didn’t just survive, we thrived.” - Jordan Peter, Gwich’in Tribal Council
