This article is based on a paper prepared for the convening of Over the Line: A Conversation about Race, Place, and the Environment, coordinated by In-grid Waldron; it was thus originally delivered in the context of a community of scholars interested and engaged in environmental justice (EJ) as well as anti-racism scholarship and activism. Conversations at the symposium were rich and deep, introducing novel ideas and generating a synergistic energy among those present. While this article builds upon the knowledge, experiences, and perspectives shared at the event, it also aims to introduce a distinct conception of Indigenous environmental justice (IEJ) based on Indigenous legal orders, knowledge systems, and conceptions of justice.
