Native leaders discuss climate change

Indigenous leaders from the US, Canada and Mexico gathered earlier this month in Chiapas to discuss how Native communities can help address climate change. The delegates represented more than 200 tribes. Larry Merculieff, an Aleut originally from St. Paul Island, attended the meetings.  He says one of the main messages of the conference was to find solutions to global warming from traditional knowledge and values.
