Native Americans protest the Arizona Snowbowl ski resort today, Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013, in Flagstaff, Arizona, in solidarity with Idle No More. The Arizona Snowbowl has acted in total disregard for Native Americans. Thirteen area Indian Nations hold the San Francisco Peaks sacred. However, the Snowbowl is now spraying the mountain with artificial snow made of sewage water. The Peaks are a place where medicine men have long gathered healing herbs and conducted ceremonies. Native Americans are urging an international boycott of the Arizona Snowbowl, which fought Native Americans protecting the Peaks in lengthy court battles in order to proceed with the desecration of the Peaks.
