US native tribe bids to reclaim territory

Native American tribe fights for return of its land even though much of it is now a toxic wasteland.

    In Oklahoma, a Native American tribe is hoping to set a precedent that may have implications for Indigenous communities across the country.

    After having their land forcibly seized and polluted by mining companies, the people of the Quapaw tribe say they should be allowed to oversee their territory’s rebirth.
