Everyday Exposure

Indigenous Mobilization and Environmental Justice in Canada's Chemical Valley

Surrounded by Canada's densest concentration of chemical manufacturing plants, members of the Aamjiwnaang First Nation report a declining male birth rate and high incidences of miscarriage, asthma, cancer, and cardiovascular illness. Everyday Exposure uncovers the systemic injustices they face as they fight for environmental justice. Exploring the problems that conflicting levels of jurisdiction pose for the creation of effective policy, analyzing clashes between Indigenous and scientific knowledge, and documenting the experiences of Aamjiwnaang residents as they navigate their toxic environment, this book argues that social and political change requires a transformative policy approach, one that takes the voices of Indigenous citizens seriously.
