"Climate Change & Resilience of Native American Coastal Communities"
with Jean Luc Pierite

On January 21, 2016, the Obama Administration awarded $48 million to relocate the Isle de Jean Charles Band of Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw Indians due to rising sea levels disintegrating their traditional homeland. The Louisiana tribe became the first climate change refugee community, but were not isolated in impact by climate change. In solidarity with all impacted nations, Jean-Luc shares his story Post-Katrina and indigenous perspectives on The Paris Agreement and The Sustainable Development Goals. 

Jean-Luc Pierite is a member of Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana and President of the Board, North American Indian Center of Boston.
