Climate and Native Wisdom: The People of the Caribou

A clip from Wisdom of the Elders’ documentary short Climate and Native Wisdom: The People of the Caribou.

Wisdom is producing a series of Native American climate documentaries alongside the fourth series of Wisdom of the Elders Radio Program. Oral history, cultural arts, and climate science series featuring voices of exemplary Native elders, storytellers, song carriers, and scientists, offer vital perspective on environmental and climate issues.

Two documentary short films and Wisdom of the Elders Radio Programs have been produced. Funded by National Endowment for the Arts with additional assistance from the Puyallup Tribe of Indians Charity Trust Board and Tulalip Tribes Charitable Fund.
