Indigenous peoples’ connection to their ancestral homelands and Americans’ concept of “public lands” intersect — or collide when those lands are under threat of development and proposed for government protection.
Current examples of that intersection can be found in the proposed lithium mine at Thacker Pass, the sacred Shoshone Cedars of Eastern Nevada, and Avi Kwa Ame, also known as Spirit Mountain.
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
