Expert in the laws around Amercia’s Indian tribes Professor Rebecca Tsosie talks about the rights of the country’s indigenous people and how they are impacted by climate change, sustainability and globalisation.

President Donald Trump has clashed in the past with tribal communities over their identity and rights. He has also vowed to overturn a decision to halt completion of an oil pipeline opposed by an environmental alliance that includes Native American groups concerned about pollution and damage to sacred lands. Tsosie, a University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law professor and a special adviser on diversity to the university provost, is an internationally recognised expert in federal Indian law and indigenous peoples’ human rights. Her research interests include tribal self-determination, environmental justice for tribal communities, and tribal rights to environmental and cultural resources, as well as climate change and adaptation, ecological ethics, and environmental humanities.
