Refresh Mother Earth with the Black Mesa Water Coalition, yá’át’ééh

Video by Paper Rocket Productions LLC

Please meet some of the people who form the Black Mesa Water Coalition. Roberto Nutlouis and others attended the Indigenous Environmental Network Conference on the Rights of Mother Earth in April.  They’re deep into water issues in Navajo and Hopi Country and creating Green businesses to support their traditional communities working to develop sustainable economies. Since they are a part of these communities they have a vested interest in their future.  We are all a part of the community of Earth. So we are all connected. We are all related.

navajotruth’s Stop SB 2109 Navajo-Hopi Little Colorado Water Rights Settlement Act of 2012

Video by navajotruth

Seems it could be a long and very HOT summer in the land of the Dine and Hopi–and I’m not talking about solar heat.   Sorry no sheep or plastic water bottle math lessons in this video.  Just a full body reality check. When’s the last time your grandparents protested?

 

Stop Senate Bill 2109 Now! Peter McDonald does the water math — sheep included!

yourstorydigital filmed and edited this video for everyone to SHARE! So please share it widely to help prevent the theft of Navajo-Hopi water rights.  I hope I’m as lucid as Peter McDonald if I ever reach 83 years of age.  Got sheep? Need water. Ain’t got sheep–still need water. Why give away what you need to live for others to waste? Who needs another coal mine? Who needs another mall? Who needs another subdivision for snowbirds? Genocide comes in many forms–taking away water that gives life is one way to kill people.  Once the water is gone then so will be the people and all other living things.  Tell Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl to take a hike down a Peabody Coal Mine shaft.

Online form to tell McCain what you think of SB 2109  http://mccain.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Contact.ContactForm

Online form to tell Kyl what you think of SB 2109  http://kyl.senate.gov/contact.cfm

What more do you need? Nudge, nudge–Earth Day is every day.

NOTE   POST UPDATE REGARDING THE DISAPPEARANCE OF PETER MCDONALD’S GREAT SPEECH. THE FOLLOWING WAS POSTED ON YOUTUBE BY YOURSTORYDIGITAL APPROX 12 HOURS PRIOR TO THIS NOTE:

“Dear Friends,

I have been asked to remove Chairman McDonald’s speech by his family. I must respect their wishes. Please do not distribute any copies you may have made. Thank you for understanding. Susan”

PERHAPS THIS INDICATES ANOTHER REASON WHY SB 2109 NEEDS TO BE STOPPED?  AT THIS POINT IN TIME I DO NOT KNOW THE ANSWER. BUT NOW I’M WONDERING EVEN MORE ABOUT THE CONTEXT IN WHICH THIS WATER RIGHTS ISSUE IS OPERATING.

Another ‘update’–scroll down to Mario’s comment for another excellent video link!!! Thank you!!!!
