I think Xdresser might be talking about the Leap Manifesto
https://leapmanifesto.org/en/the-leap-manifesto/ where it states this
This leap must begin by respecting the inherent rights and title of the original caretakers of this land. Indigenous communities have been at the forefront of protecting rivers, coasts, forests and lands from out-of-control industrial activity. We can bolster this role, and reset our relationship, by fully implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
which would give Natives a veto on any resource extraction at least that is what the UN Declaration states if i’m remembering the arguements on it
