Indigenous Revelations

"People go through every moment of their lives... without thinking about Native peoples or american colonialism for one second. And, frustratingly, our society and education system has deemed that perfectly fine.” This blog is dedicated to north 'american' Indigenous culture, struggle and identity. It serves as a tool to not only celebrate these cultures and people, but also to combat the continuous cycle of ignorance, racism and cultural genocide against Native peoples.

19 people were arrested at Snow Bowl Road, Flagstaff, AZ.  17 of whom are not Native but from across continent. “Such protests go against the Hopi way, and Diné for that matter; we should talk and listen to one another,” respected Hopi kiva leader Jerry Honawa said in response. “Lawyers and yelling only make trouble.”

The peaks are sacred to 13 local tribes, yet the desecration of the peaks prevails. The Snowbowl is permitted to use wastewater to create artificial snow on the sacred peaks. I guess skiing (a pastime reserved for the affluent) is more important than Indigenous identities. 

"As long as the Arizona Snowbowl, the Obama Administration’s Forest Service and the City of Flagstaff continue this ecocide and cultural genocide, we will not stop. We will pray, march, protest, and take whatever action is necessary to ensure that our basic human rights, dignity and environment are safeguarded." -Diné activist, Klee Benally
