Arctic indigenous peoples have faced the challenge of adapting to climate change since prehistoric times. How have they responded to changing marine and terrestrial environmental conditions?  What are the social, cultural, political, and economic strategies that they use to survive?  In this panel presentation, four scholars address these questions by looking at adaptation strategies and cultural change among the Inuit of North America and the Sakha of the Russian Federation.
