Tensions rise as the Indian Child Welfare Act heads to the Supreme Court this fall.

In 2012 California shut down the San Onofre nuclear power plant after decades of anti-nuclear activism, leaving the state with only one remaining nuclear plant. This meant that California started producing more of its energy by burning fossil fuels. So was the closing of San Onofre a victory or a tragedy for the environment? The answer to this question hinges on another: how much danger is society willing to accept to fight climate...

Last Friday, Vice President Kamala Harris agreed to a sit down interview with VICE News chief political correspondent Liz Landers.

Moors in America believe that they – and many Black Americans – are descendents of the Moroccan Empire, which they claim once extended all the way from North Africa to North America. This would make Moors indigenous to an America that far predates the United States.

But beyond that shared credence, the movement is scattered. Some seek only to practice spiritual beliefs while others maintain that being a Moor means U.S. laws do not a...

After Roe v. Wade was overturned, many wondered what living in a post-Roe America would look like. But for a lot of Native people, Roe has never been a reality. Though the federal government is obligated to provide tribes with healthcare, decades-old restrictions on federal funding have severely limited the provision of abortion. 

Organizations like Indigenous Women Rising have been advocating for reproductive rights and abortion in...

Last year, Alzo Slade took us to Jamaica, where residents are fighting against mining in the most ecologically sensitive part of the island: Cockpit Country. The Maroons who live there, descendants of indigenous people and formerly enslaved Africans who joined together to fight British colonizers, say mining would destroy their way of life.
