Description

Indigenous Environmental Justice is edited by Karen Jarratt-Snider, Mississippi Choctaw, and Marianne O. Nielsen. This volume clearly distinguishes Indigenous environmental justice from the broader idea of environmental justice, detailing examples from recent  environmental injustices in Indian Country. With focused essays on topics such as the uranium mining on Navajo and Hopi lands, the Dakota Access Pipeline dispute on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, environmental cleanup efforts in Alaska, and many other pertinent examples, this volume emphasizes environmental devastation that is occurring in Indian Country and the importance of self-determination and sovereignty in victories of Indigenous environmental justice.
