The People’s Climate March was two weeks ago now, but Indigenous People’s involvement on the front lines of stark environmental changes is anything but fading.

A recent conference at Arizona State University, Indigenous Sustainability: Implications for the Future of Indigenous Peoples and Native Nations focused solely on tribes and brought together experts from all over the world. Indigenous Peoples who traveled to New York City for the march, which drew 400,000 people, are back at work fielding climate change issues and raising awareness. A good 400 indigenous people led the march, according to the Indigenous Environmental Network.
