The Kalinago people on the island of Dominica face new challenges from climate change.

First Nations Experience

The Kalinago people were among the first Native Americans to encounter Christopher Columbus. The tribe, over the centuries, fought off the Spanish, the French, and were eventually pushed by the British to a small corner of their own island. Yet they remain. Now on their homeland the Kalinago face a new challenge, climate change and stronger hurricanes. But the Kalinago are resilient.
