As Elodie and 35,000 other Congolese children negotiate dangerous working conditions that impair their health, some Western consumers enjoy the fruits of their debilitating labor to fight for their own rights in the ableist infrastructure of the West. Americans and people around the world benefit from the cooling power of an aquifer in South Carolina, water that is in the ground traditionally stewarded by the Catawba, Pee Dee, Chicora, Edisto, Santee, Yamassee, and Chicora-Waccamaw who are all still present in South Carolina, as are many descendants of the Cherokee, despite also being devastated by European-born diseases like smallpox.
