Wildfire evacuations have unique impacts on Indigenous communities: study

When wildfires spread they can have devastating impacts — forcing people to leave their homes and belongings — and new research said the effects may be even greater for Indigenous communities. The study, published in the February 2019 volume of the International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction, looks at how members of the Mishkeegogamang Ojibway Nation in northwestern Ontario — where over 1,000 people were living — responded to a mandatory wildfire evacuation in June 2011.
