1.25 PHOENIX, AZ: Resistance at Black Mesa

- Resistance at Black Mesa -

A fundraiser to maintain logistical and physical support to mostly elderly Dineh (Navajos) and community members who resisted and continue to resist threats of removal and coal mining expansion, as well as uranium and natural gas extraction.

WHERE: The Hive, 2222 N 16th St, Phoenix, Az
WHEN: Saturday, January 25th, at 4P

Featuring speaker Bahe Kat Keediniihii; from Big Mountain, long time translator for traditional Dineh
...and more (TBA)

Film screening of "Dine Bikeyah" and a segment of "Broken Rainbow"


Since 1974, a congressional mandate authorized 18,000 Dineh to vacate their ancestral homelands in northeastern Arizona. Over 4,000 more were displaced. This law is a practice of genocide according universal to Human Rights doctrines. Southwestern energy companies conspired to have this law passed to gain access to natural resources of Black Mesa - enough coal to mine until 2060, billions of acre feet of aquifer depleted, and potential for shale fracking.
