Physical and cultural genocide have been practiced against Native Americans for half a millennium. In the modern era, these forms of genocide have been superseded by a more insidious, and ultimately more destructive, form. Environmental genocide is perpetrated by the U.S. government and by private corporations alike; some of their methods are legal, while others are not. Against this harsh backdrop, Native Americans are more unified and are becoming better organized than ever, and they are fighting back for their very survival.
