Photos Of A Tribal Environmental Movement

In the August issue of National Geographic, Charles Bowden reports on a growing environmental movement among Native Americans. Bowdoin writes that "something remarkable is emerging in Indian country.

As you can see in the slideshow below, the land these tribes are restoring is remarkable in its beauty.
