Hopi's 'Water is Life,' message carried by runners


"Hopi, Water is Life," is the message on the shirts of both Hunter Red Day, Navajo/Dakota and Manny Pino, Acoma Pueblo, attending the Western Mining Action Network Conference 2007 in Tucson today. During Hopi sacred runs, runners have carried the message of the sacred nature of water. Native people attending the mining action conference said the contamination of drinking water by uranium, coal, copper, gold and silver mining corporatons has created a global crisis for Indigenous Peoples.
