“Indigenous Communities and Environmental Justice” In the Southeastern United States, indigenous communities are often omitted from discussions about environmental justice. These omissions permeate public policy and have serious implications for Native American tribes living in the region today. A case in point is the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a 600-mile long fossil fuel pipeline that would impact several Native American tribes in the southeastern US. This talk focuses on the efforts of tribes, organizations, and individuals currently working to voice indigenous concerns about environmental justice and other topics related to this major infrastructure project.
