Censored News shares with you this week the Indigenous voices from the Rights of Mother Earth gathering at Haskell Indian Nations University, Kansas. It continues the efforts from the gathering in Cochabamba, Bolivia, with videos by Govinda at Earthcycles.
In another series, Censored News shares with readers the voices of Navajos and Hopis opposing the theft of water rights to the Little Colorado River. It is a scheme by Arizona Congressmen and corrupt Navajo officials, designed to give water to dirty coal-fired power plants and non-Indians downriver in Arizona.
The media spin is already underway, with Native media publishing propaganda promoting the dirty coal fired power plant, Navajo Generating Station.
