Inuit youth council president ‘frustrated’ with Paris climate talks

APTN National News
Some of the Indigenous delegates are coming home from the climate talks in Paris disappointed.

While they played a big role, they didn’t get what they wanted – an acknowledgement of the unique place Indigenous people play in climate change.

For one young Inuit delegate, losing the fight to get that acknowledgement defined her trip.

APTN’s Kent Driscoll has the story.
