The Ho-Chunk Nation is the first tribal nation in the United States to enshrine Rights of Nature in their tribal constitution. This is a significant step towards the prohibition and recognition of fossil fuel extraction as a violation of Rights of Nature. It also symbolizes Ho-Chunk solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux in opposition to the Dakota Access oil pipeline, recognizing the destructive impact of fossil fuel extraction. The human right to a healthy environment is dependent on the health of Mother Earth. Accordingly, this human right can only be fulfilled by recognizing in law Nature’s right to be healthy and thrive.
