Climate change is declining the agency of indigenous communities.The indigenous peoples of Oaxaca hold cultural, traditional knowledge which is an important element of indigenous medical systems in Mexico. Oaxaca is facing drought and forest fires alongside growing infestations of the forests within the Sierra Juarez mountain range. These ongoing climate events impact the livelihoods of these indigenous groups that make up a portion of the Oaxacan population. The deterioration of natural resources impacts the use of indigenous medical systems as well as the transmission of knowledge found within these systems.
