Indigenous communities have long been at the forefront of advancing environmental justice and have a critical connection and relationship to lands, waters, and sacred sites that have too often been the source of malpractice by corporations, organizations, and various levels of government. They have also been at the forefront of environmental protection leading movements to protect natural resources for all.
