DILKON, Navajo Nation -- Dine' Roberto Nutlouis has been on a journey of discovering how Peabody Coal abused the aquifer, and how to share this with the local communities. Along the way, the Dine' teachings have guided him as a farmer, and in the struggle for a just transition to solar from fossil fuels.
Speaking at Dine' CARE's Western Peoples Convention, Roberto said, "We are Sacred Beings, we come from an intention of Power."
