Native American community leaders on Long Island met this week to discuss the environmental impact of overdevelopment. That’s as Indigenous fishermen are still reeling from a record fish kill for the second year in a row in Long Island bays.
Becky Genia is a member of the Shinnecock Indian Nation. She said the town of Southampton needs to take responsibility for its pollution of Shinnecock Bay.
"All of this is about profit and making money. And I asked the board of Southampton, can you eat your money?" Genia said.
