3. Naelyn Pike: 14 year-old Apache warrior for justice & Mother Earth speaks.



Prior to their multi-week cross-country caravan to Washington D.C. Apache Stronghold and supporters gathered in Tucson, Arizona to rally support. This is Naelyn Pike, granddaughter of Wendsler Nosie Sr., speaking from the heart concerning the Arizona Land Exchange and the forfeiture of the Apache holy land Oak Flat.

The Spiritualtion movement stands in solidarity with Apache Stronghold and the Save Oak Flat Act, we stand in solidarity with all peoples whose land, water, health and way of life have been sacrificed to the greed and corruption of multinational corporations.

In December 2014, after a decade of failed attempts to secure Oak Flat for mining purposes, Senator John McCain, Senator Jeff Flake, Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick and Congressman Paul Gosar conspired to add a last minute bill to the have-to-pass NDAA that forfeited sacred Apache land to the international mining conglomerate Rio Tinto (Freeport-McMoRan), effectively bypassing the democratic process and public scrutiny.

Apache Stronghold, led by Wendsler Nosie Sr. (a San Carlos Apache councilman and former chairman), recently traveled to Washington D.C. to bring further attention to this threat to their sacred land and the Save Oak Flat Act, a bill introduced by Arizona congressman Raul Grijalva to repeal the land exchange and save this sacred indigenous holy land from imminent destruction.

Apache Stronghold and the movement to Save Oak Flat are calling for all who support the right to freedom of religion and the sanctity of the sacred land of indigenous peoples, and who resist the corruption and anti-democratic maneuvering of congress, to join in this fight in every way you can, through prayer & song, by calling your local Senators and Congresspersonís offices, sending letters, signing the petitions below, and joining them in person in Washington D.C.
