Livestock impoundment crews have confiscated calves and stolen and immediately sold horses belonging to several Dine’ people of Big Mountain/Black Mesa, Arizona. These livestock impoundments constitute human rights violations against traditional Dine’ (Navajo); they take away one of their major food sources and one of the main sources of their livelihood. This is a tactical move to further genocidal relocation policies.

 

SINCE 1974, federal relocation policy has forced 14,000 Dine’ people from their ancestral homeland in Arizona. This genocidal policy was crafted by government agents and energy company representatives in order to gain access to the mineral resources of Black Mesa – billions of tons of coal, uranium and natural gas.

For over 30 years, traditional Dine’ at Black Mesa have lived in resistance, steadfastly refusing to relocate as strip-mines rip apart their sacred lands and generating plants poison the desert air.
