VIDEO: O'odham Ofelia Rivas speaks at SRP protest

Ofelia Rivas, O'odham, speaks during the protest of the Salt River Project in Tempe, Ariz., on Dec. 2, part of the protest of the American Legislative Exchange Council meeting in Scottsdale. Rivas welcomed all to O'odham land and said a prayer for the people, land and all living things.
SRP diverted water from O'odham lands for non-Indian use, devastating the agricultural way of life of the O'odham people. Further, today SRP operates the coal-fired power plant, Navajo Generating Station, on the Navajo Nation.
