TEMPE, Arizona -- A Native American student chastised Arizona Sen. John McCain for endangering the water and sacred place of Oak Flat.

She called out McCain on Friday at Arizona State University for his fraudulent front in caring about Arizona, while endangering Apaches ceremonial grounds at Oak Flat with his planned copper mine, sneaked into the US defense bill.

Earlier, McCain was chased off the Navajo Nation by protesters in 2015. McCain endangers sacred places and pushes backdoor schemes to steal Native American water rights. Yet McCain remains on the US Senate Committee for Indian Affairs. This exposes the ongoing genocide by the US government.

Since the Native American media no longer has staff reporters in Washington, and relies instead on plagiarism and rewrites, McCain and the other hustlers have accelerated their theft of Native American land and water rights, while desecrating sacred places.

So-called Senator McCain is a disgrace to the people he serves & is nothing more than a sell-out! We as Native People have known for years that he is no friend to Indian Country! He should resign and introduce new legislation to return back Oak Flats back to the Apache!
