Nevada: Native Americans walk to protest water theft scheme


Native Americans begin 272 mile walk/run to protest water theft scheme


By Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation
On Saturday, May 4, 2013 approximately 70 Native Americans representing the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation, Wells Colony, Elko/TeMoke Tribe, Battle Mountain and Yomba Shoshone along with Tribal members from the Northern Ute, Cheyenne-Arapaho, Navajo, Cherokee and non-natives begin a Walk/Run from Wells, Nevada towards Caliente, Nevada, a distance of approximately 272 miles.
After a blessing and prayer for the water, the group began the long trek walking and running on U.S. 93 towards Ely, Nevada.
The walk/run is to bring attention to the proposed Southern Nevada Water Authority’s (SNWA) proposed water theft from northeastern Nevada and for prayers to save the sacred water for the children not yet born, the animals, plants, protection of traditional medicine, traditional food and ceremonial places.
Along the route willows will be planted with prayers for the water. Camp is set up each evening along the side of the road.
As of today, (Monday — May 6, 2013) the group has reached the junction of U.S. 93 and 93A a distance of approximately 79 miles. The walk/run will arrive in Ely, Nevada on or about Monday evening and will camp on the Ely Shoshone Reservation for two days before continuing to Caliente, Nevada.

WHY ARE MORMONS SO CORRUPT? IS THIS WHY THEY HIDE BEHIND THE FACADE OF CHRISTIANITY, SO PEOPLE WILL THINK THEY'RE GOD-FEARING AND TRUSTWORTHY?

JOLENE SUPP - CITY MANAGER FOR WELLS, NEVADA - HAS BEEN UP ON CHARGES FOR CONFLICT OF INTEREST YET SHE'S NEVER BEEN INDICTED. IT'S BECAUSE ONLY MORMONS LIKE HER DECIDE THESE CASES.

HOW BAD DOES IT HAVE TO GET BEFORE DECENT CITIZENS BEGIN SCREAMING FOR THE SAME KIND OF REFORMS OTHER AREAS HAVE UNDERGONE? ARE THERE ANY DECENT CITIZENS IN ELKO COUNTY, NEVADA?
