The UN’s International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples takes place annually on August 9th and presents the opportunity to raise awareness of the cultural significance of indigenous peoples around the world. In the spirit of amplifying Indigenous voices, Frontiers in Sustainability is launching a new article collection inspired by this important UN day. This occasion not only offers an opportunity to reflect on the community resilience and sustainable practices of indigenous peoples, but also to consider the importance of involving them in policymaking discussions. Themes may include, but are by no means limited to: 

  • How Tribal Sovereignty and self-determination influence approaches to sustainability;
  • Indigenous leadership and indigenizing of climate adaptation strategies for community resilience;
  • Indigenous and Tribal approaches to climate change resilience;
  • Food, energy, and data sovereignty in a changing climate;
  • Federal Policies and Energy Development on Tribal Lands; and,
  • Protection-in-Place & Community-Led Relocation.
