Sacred Sites Advocates Urge Ann Kirkpatrick to Protect the Sacred Oak Flat
By Klee Benally, Dine'
FLAGSTAFF, AZ -- A handful of Dine' protestors showed up in Flagstaff to urge Congress woman Ann Kirkpatrick to "Say No to Resolution Copper! Protect the Oak Flat & stop the destruction and desecration of Apache lands!"
Although the grand opening of Kirkpatrick's Flagstaff office was cancelled due to a snowstorm, two of her staff members we're greeted by the sacred sites advocates.
Kirkpatrick has also contributed to desecration of the holy San Francisco Peaks. In 2010 she joined John McCain and Jon Kyle in pressuring the US Department of Agriculture to permit Arizona Snowbowl ski resort to make snow from treated sewage on the Peaks.
