Description: 

Leaders of the indigenous tribe from Louisiana's Isle de Jean Charles say they want to help other low-lying communities around the world cope with sea level rise. "We know we aren't the only ones," says Chantel Comardelle, a Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw Indian who claims the Isle de Jean Charles as home. "This isn't just about us."
