“The Save the Confluence” families will be presenting to the Navajo Nation Council’s Naabik’iyati Committee on Friday June 13, 2014, at 10 a.m. at the Navajo Nation Council chambers in Window Rock, Ariz.
That’s according to Renae Yellowhorse.
Yellowhorse stated in a June 11, 2014, press release that the Escalade Developers will also be in attendance and they will be making their presentation in support of their proposed Escalade Project along the Colorado River Confluence, which is in the southern part of the Grand Canyon.
She noted that the families are asking the Navajo people and tribaly elected officials to continue to stand with the “Traditional and Customary Land Users and Permit Holders” of the Southern Bodaway area, which is located in the western portion of the Navajo Reservation, against “unwanted, too large, out of the way big Escalade Development at all holy and sacred places: the Grand Canyon, the Little Colorado River, Colorado River, Bidaa jii.”
“We are asking for peaceful support within the chambers,” Renae Yellowhorse stated. “We also ask to show your support message with signs and banners. We will be communicating via email, phone, and text messages. Ahe’hee to all.”
