Protests were held at the Navajo Nation Council Chambers in Window Rock today demanding support for Diné residents on Hopi Partition Lands whose livestock are currently being impounded by Hopi Rangers and Federal Agents.
Residents are stating that Hopi Rangers and Federal agents are “arriving early in the morning, barricading Navajo families in their homes, barricade road entrance so no one could come or go, and anyone who raised objections or asked questions would be arrested on the spot”
Black Mesa Indigenous Support posted a letter the community members had given to the Navajo Nation Council Chambers that you can read here.
Black Mesa Indigenous Support also set up an emergency fund for residents that will need help paying fees for the release of their livestock. Contribute to the fund here.
