Corporate Responsibility for the Protection of Native American Sacred Sites
This publication has been produced by the Sacred Land Film Project with principal author Lyuba Zarsky and research and editingby Christopher McLeod and Roz Dzelzitis.
Conflicts between Native Americans and U.S. corporations over threats to culturally significant places are escalating. Native American groups have been able to stop or mitigate the destructive effects of some corporate developments, but each battle is long and costly, and new threats continue to emerge. To raise the protection of sacred sites to the level of a social norm, innovations are needed — not only in law but also in corporate practice.
