The Ogoni are an indigenous ethnic group in the oil rich Niger Delta of Nigeria. The people depend on fishing, farming, and trading for sustenance. This close relationship with the land means Ogoni communities have placed strong emphasis on the care of the environment, believing it to be the life-giving source of the people and the dwelling place of their ancestors.
