"It’s going to be the blink of an eye before my great grandchild is living in a completely different territory, and if that’s not an emergency, I don’t know what is."
Dana Tizya-Tramm is the youngest known Chief of the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation. A passionate advocate for his people and their land, under his leadership Vuntut Gwitchin recently declared a climate emergency in response to the dire changes they are witnessing in their territory. As the North is warming faster than the global average, Dana hopes that his people's warning at the frontlines will inspire action and lay the groundwork for an accord with Indigenous nations throughout the world.
