This qualitative research study investigates the ways that Mi’kmaq Traditional Ecological Knowledge can provide regionally-specific information about the effects of climate change and the ways that Mi’kmaq values can supplement Western approaches to climate change. Through interviews and an analysis of common Mi’kmaq folklore, I look for facets of their culture that can be applied to climate change. In building awareness of Mi’kmaq knowledge and values, my research envisions a forward-justice framework that will allow a population to adapt and flourish in the future.
