Our video collection “Indigenous Perspectives of Climate Change”, made collaboratively with communities and researchers in 2008-9, documents several important traditional knowledge perspectives of environmental change. Of particular relevance, the video created with FSDA.ru in the Russia’s Altai Mountains “Land has Breath” and another with Marilyn Wallace from the Wet tropics of Far North Australia “Walking on Country with Spirits”.
All of our written and video work is creative commons and is available for wide online sharing, embedding, teaching and discussion. We invite you take a look at Our World 2.0
