What can we learn from Native American environmentalism?

What can we learn from Native Americans' relationship with the land and environment? On the next Your Call, we'll rebroadcast our program from Indigenous People's Day. Native American reservations have been targeted for fossil fuel development, leading to the contamination and depletion of water, land and community health. How are indigenous communities responding? How are indigenous communities creatively tackling the many environmental problems we face?
