Ecocide of Native America - Environmental Destruction of Indian Lands and Peoples is a well-written expose of the ongoing destruction of Native American reservation lands and cultures. The authors document the years of industrial waste and radiation that have contaminated Native people and their communities. Grinde and Johansen state that Native Americans are victims of ecocide that has destroyed the environment and poisoned many people. The authors present the argument that Indigenous People are considered the first ecologists who continue to maintain traditional ecological knowledge. The beliefs and worldview of Native People stress the respect for Mother Earth. The authors explore several cultures and their teachings that express this respect for nature and the belief that humans and nature remain interconnected and interdependent. An early chapter is devoted to a discussion of the ecological and spiritual dimensions of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt in New Mexico. Ecocide also means the cultural devastation inflicted on many Native American cultures whose traditional ways of life have been damaged by water and air pollution. A chapter documents the toxic environment found in the Akwesasne Mohawk community that straddles the Canada and US border. Another chapter looks at the worst nuclear accident in the US. Many people believe this happened at Three Mile Island but the authors expose the details behind the biggest expulsion of radioactive material in the US that occurred on the Navajo Reservation in July of 1978. Chapters are also devoted to the Yamasee of the Southeast, the Navajo, fishing rights on the West Coast, and uranium mining in the Black Hills. The final chapter contains speeches from Native activists including Mathew Coon Come speaking about the James Bay hydroelectric project in northern Quebec. This is an important book for anyone interested in the environment and Native Studies.
