From salmon protection and water rights to prescribed burns and agrarian practices to direct action and countless other efforts, Indigenous communities are flexing their legal muscle and cultural rights across the continent and globe in an effort to protect lands and resources for future generations. Indigenous peoples practiced these "sustainable management" efforts long before modern society began talking about conservation, environmental protection or climate change, and their voices are still here and can greatly enrich environmental reporting. How can environmental journalists best incorporate Indigenous voices into their climate change and sustainability stories without misrepresenting intent or disrespecting cultures?
