Tribes in south Louisiana live in the fastest eroding basin in the country. As a result, they are suffering unprecedented loss from coastal erosion, subsidence and sea level rise. Parts of their aboriginal homelands are already submerged, and projections estimate that some communities will disappear within the next 50 years. The article discusses the challenges faced by these indigenous communities to preserve their communities and cultural heritage.
