GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sacred Water: Environmental justice in Indian Country

Title:
Sacred Water: Environmental justice in Indian Country

Abstract:
For Native American tribes, water more than sustains -- it is a sacred, living thing to be revered and protected. It is their cultural touchstone.

Yet tribes across the United States face water pollution problems that make their members sick, taint their traditions and epitomize the weight of modernity squeezing spiritual connections to a breaking point. When it comes to water, more than just treaty rights are at stake for Native Americans. It's basic environmental justice.

Sacred Water is Environmental Health News' ongoing investigation into Native American struggles--and solutions--to protect culturally significant water sources on and off the reservation.
