Navajo Reservation Peace Observing

"Dear Friends and Family,

For the last 15 years, I have been travelling to the Navajo (Dineh) reservation as a human rights observer and supporter for the elders who are resisting relocation on Black Mesa.  I have gone out in answer to a call for help from the Dineh people as they have undergone severe hardship in a political, aggressive battle for their land.  Peabody Coal has mines on Hopi and Dineh land, and has been attempting to expand its strip mining operation to further power Las Vegas and Southern California. So far, they have been successful by pushing thousands of inidigenous people onto land that has been deemed unfit for human survival. Many families have refused to leave their ancestral home, and have been met with decades of intimidation, harrassment, arrests, and strict laws designed to destroy their way of life  and force them off the coal filled land."
