I'm resharing this in the hope that if I point out that the white area of the stone outlines the whole-body profile of a bear (nose on left), people in this community might be more interested in this ancient American stone carving.  :)

(Video) Democracy Now interview with Klee Benally, a Diné (Navajo) activist and musician and Taylor McKinnon, director of energy with Grand Canyon Trust. Video link (17:30, 2014)  www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSEADfWh9To

"The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon’s popular South Rim entrance.

A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects.

Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines.

From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region.

More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments.

Broadcasting from Flagstaff, Arizona, we (Democracy Now) speak with Taylor McKinnon, director of energy with Grand Canyon Trust, and Klee Benally, a Diné (Navajo) activist and musician.

"It’s really a slow genocide of the people, not just indigenous people of this region, but it’s estimated that there are over 10 million people who are residing within 50 miles of abandoned uranium mines," Benally says.

Benally also describes the struggle to preserve the San Francisco Peaks, an area considered sacred by 13 Native tribes, where the Snowbowl ski resort is using treated sewage water to make snow."

"Sacred Sites and Biodiversity - Scenes from Standing on Sacred Ground" by Sacred Land Film Project (6min, 2014)
"This clip contains three scenes from Standing on Sacred Ground—in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Ethiopia. We've frequently been asked the question, "What is the tangible value of sacred places?" Our scientific, materialistic culture demands proof. These three film scenes answer the question. According to the World Bank, indigenous people make up 4% of the world's population, control 22% of the Earth's land surface, and on that land is 80% of the remaining biodiversity on the planet. Indigenous people are obviously doing a remarkable job respecting and conserving the diversity of life around them. Within their territories are sacred places that provide the anchor, the center, the cultural values and customary laws that connect native communities to wise ancestors and future generations. These are the reasons that sacred places and indigenous land rights are so important and need to be better respected and protected."

This statue has finally been removed from St. Louis University campus! Thanks to university administration for listening to the students who complained about it and the racist message that it clearly displayed. I had posted this photo to this community previously to get a Native American perspective on the statue, which was overwhelmingly negative. I just wanted to update everyone that our students have successfully had it removed!

Yeah! One ups! I can see why I don't know how come confuse it maybe, to see the hatred looking at them down it should be in reverse kneeing before them. It not by chose but by reason knowing there are becoming the dominant culture again. Yep! That is about right! what I am seeing!

Finally some GOOD news on the disenrollment front from Chukchansi.  Possible restoration of those disenrolled in 2010 and later.   Still leaves about 600 out from earlier abuses, but this is the right move.  Please SHARE, tweet and GOOGLE +    help traffic increase to keep this issue on the front burner.   THOUSANDS need your help....even if some won't help themselves.

Summertime. That time of year when our favorite TV Shows are on hiatus and the summer heat has you searching for that perfect spot to sit 'n read. With that in mind, we put together a great list of can't-put-'em-down books by indigenous writers that will please even the most avid readers among us.

I have been working on 2 very LARGE beadwork projects, so yesterday I just needed to actually finish SOMETHING ... so I took a break and did this little guy. Very excited about the other two, but sometimes you just need to go to bed with a check in the "DONE" box :D
