Unearthing the pre-industrial waterways of the Mississippi River Delta.


Bayougoula, Biloxi, Chitimatcha, Choctaw, Houma, and many other nations across the Mississippi River watershed have benefited from the wealth of natural resources and access to trade found in the delta for centuries. Multinational corporations continue to benefit from that access due to the foundations of colonial occupation and plantation practices, paving the way for their ever-expanding modern-day petrochemical projects, exposing human and nonhuman populations alike to toxic risks.
