Big Mountain: Youth Honoring Dineh (Navajo) Resistance

By NaBahii Keediniihii
Censored News

Dineh (Navajo) youths and other indigenous youth will be coming together to discuss today's era of decolonizing of thyself and the future outlook for indigenous futures. Youths will gather at Mosquito Springs, one of Big Mountain communities in resistance to the federal relocation laws and coal mining. Local Dineh elders will give instructions about traditional foods and other practices of survival and spiritual awareness. These youths, some who participated in the Nihi Gaal Bee Iinaa Walk, will be there to express their appreciation for the Big Mountain communities in resistance. We are hoping that more Dineh and other indigenous youth come forth if they wish to experience and immerse themselves in this, off the grid, Rez life's teachings.
