Ecojustice Resources

Indigenous justice is almost synonymous with Ecojustice today. In the Amazon and other rainforests throughout the world Indigenous peoples are working to protect their homelands. In North America confrontations over pipeline projects that endanger water have put Native communities at the forefront of this struggle for Ecojustice.

In addition, around the planet understanding and respect is growing for Traditional Environmental Knowledge (TEK) regarding care for ecosystems and species. There are many examples of this in the Coursera MOOC course “Indigenous Religions and Ecology.”

Most of the resources below are organized chronologically, with the most recent at the top. The volume of news articles concerning Indigenous traditions and ecojustice is large so we have included selections just from the past 24 months.
