We fight to ensure our tribal and Indigenous clients’ natural and cultural resources are protected for future generations

Signature Work

Earthjustice is honored to partner with Indigenous communities, including some of the 574 federally recognized Indian and Alaska Native tribes, Native Hawaiians, state recognized tribes, Indigenous NGOs, and unrecognized tribes as they fight to preserve and protect their air, earth, water, and way of life. This work necessarily is informed by the complex legal, cultural, and political issues unique to tribal and Indigenous people in North America.

Lawyers for the Seventh Generation.
Listen to a conversation with attorneys Gussie Lord and Stefanie Tsosie on their work.

Earthjustice attorneys have long represented tribes and Indigenous clients in seminal environmental cases.

We recognize that traditional land and wildlife management practices are critical tools for addressing the onslaught of climate change. We fight federal laws and policies that impair or destroy the resources necessary to practice traditional Indigenous cultures. And we elevate the voices of our tribal and Indigenous clients and partners on the front lines of environmental degradation and destruction.
