The Nicholas School of the Environment doesn’t typically produce author podcasts, but it is the most appropriate format for a discussion with Ryan Emanuel, associate professor of hydrology, about his latest book, "On the Swamp: Fighting for Indigenous Environmental Justice." In it, Emanuel speaks about the erasure and lack of voice Native American communities in North Carolina have long endured, how colonialism is intertwined with environmental degradation, and ways tribal communities are working to save their homelands. The author discusses policy recommendations, calls for community engagement, and analyzes the impacts of colonialism, industrial extraction, and environmental injustices in North Carolina.
