In this journal, I will discuss modern day environmental exploitation as it relates to native americans. In my research, I found no shortage of opposition to the dangers of natural resource extraction on tribal lands. While tribes remain sovereign nations, the overarching authority and loopholes of federal and state governments force many indigenous people to remain vulnerable to the violences of capitalism. Against all odds, native individuals and organizations throughout the country, and globe, meet these offenses with fervent opposition. Here, I will explore the tactics and victories of Indigenous North Americans.
