This paper explains how a distinct formulation of Indigenous environmental justice (IEJ) is required to address the challenges of the ecological and climate crises, as well the various forms of violence and injustices experienced by Indigenous peoples. According to the authors, this distinct IEJ formulation must ground its foundations in Indigenous philosophies, ontologies, and epistemologies in order to reflect Indigenous conceptions of what constitutes justice.
