Native Leaders Urge White House to Address Threats from Canadian Mining Activities

Indigenous leaders from Northwestern tribes called on the Biden administration to pressure Canada to halt mining activity in British Columbia. The tribes are concerned with contamination of waterways that threatens wildlife and Native American customs in Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. Leaders met in Washington D.C. with members of Congress and the U.S. departments of State and Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Canadian consulate to address their concerns.
