On May 3, 1985, the Navajo Tribal Council established Navajo Nation
Sovereignty Day so we would always remember when our sovereignty was
acknowledged and unanimously upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. The
Council set aside April 16 as Sovereignty Day – the day of the Supreme
Court’s ruling – but we now celebrate it as a tribal holiday on the
fourth Monday of April.
Yaateeh BEAUTIFUL & GREAT people! The latest update on this week’s forum in Tuba
City, Pinon, and Ganado Chapter Houses is that Ben Shelly and Co.
controlled the meetings through their presentations on the SB 2109. The
presence of high-secured police officers was evident and in full effect.
Attendees were limited to speaking time, had to sign in, were patted
down, searched for weapons, and were permitted to enter as people exited
the chapter houses. The youth were denied the opportunity to speak in
Pinon (let alone any non Navajo-speaking individuals at all chapters).
The Dine’ were told that they could not have/ hold signs in these
forums. These so called forums are out of control, controlled,
manipulated, and disrespectful to the Navajo people. This is
dictatorship, discrimination, and violation against our Dine’ people! It
is out right WRONG!!! Despite the mistreatment of our Dine’ people,
their presence was strong and their voices were heard that “they opposed
the SB 2109 Bill.” Continue to lift our people up in prayer and keep
those signatures coming! We are going to fight this to the end! I am
appalled at the Navajo Nation President’s “abuse of power” toward the
Navajo people. I will be at the ASU Powwow tomorrow collecting
signatures opposing SB 2109- see you there! Have a great weekend &
we are going to fight this in “UNITY” until the end! The following are
photos from the forums. Ahe'hee' to all the grassroots organizations and
people who attended these forums & updated us with the information/
photos- You ROCK!!! ♥, Life & Justice!!!

to everyone who voted on the Rachel Ray $100,000 Challenge. We didn't
do very well and of course didn't win due to lack of votes. But this
was just our first effort and we learned a lot in how to get out the
request to obtain more votes. We will try again for another Challenge
in the future!
a screening of "Sacred Poison." It is a disgrace that these communities
must suffer so from past uranium mining. And that there are companies
that want to mine uranium in these communities again.
EPA has identified 4,000 uranium mines nationwide and 15,000 with
“uranium occurrence.” Abandoned uranium mines are found in 14 western
states, and 75% are on federal or tribal land. While there is no federal
estimate for the total cost remediating up these sites, a federal study
in 2000 found that cleaning up 54 abandoned uranium mines cost nearly
