In this presentation, Leah Horowitz (Global Leadership and Sustainable Development Program, Hawaii Pacific University) explores indigenous people’s responses to a multinational nickel mining project in the south of New Caledonia. She examines the connections between environmental violence and concepts of political legitimacy, reasons for community members’ trust (or lack thereof) in technical/scientific information provided by the company or by an indigenous protest group, and the power dimensions of alliances between indigenous and non-indigenous protesters.
