Nihígaal béé Íina (IV)

A segunda fase do projecto Nihígaal béé Íina, da Primavera, inicia-se amanhã dia 21 de Março. Nós estamos com os caminhantes em espírito de HózhóAll the best...

"We begin to walk the 330 miles from Tsoodził to Dook'o'osłid this Saturday March 21. We will meet at sunrise at the Baca/Prewitt chapter house. The area we will be walking through is where uranium was discovered in 1939 and subsequently placed Diné people at the forefront of the nuclear energy chain. Half of the uranium used in the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was mined from our beloved Tsoodził. To this day there are hundreds of abandoned uranium mines and thousands of radioactive tailings that have yet to be cleaned up. If we value our language and culture there is absolutely no room for this type of 'economic development' on our land. Doodá means no. 
Come walk in prayer with us. 
Łeetsoh, Łeejin, Ák'ą́ Łizhin Doodá!"
