Update on the Fight for Diné Water rights

October 6, 2010

Last week there was a large turn-out for for the September 29, protest in response to the Northeastern Arizona Indian Water Rights Settlement Agreement (NAIWRSA).

From the Dine’ Water Rights page:

More than 160 concerned Dine’ (Navajo) marched, rallied and then packed the council chambers to send the message for the council to “VOTE NO!” on the water rights settlement. Children, elders, parents, students and others from throughout the Navajo Nation joined together in chanting, “Water is life! Save our Future!”

Photos from the protest can also be found on their blog. You can also download an outreach PDF and petition from their page to help spread the word on this issue.
