The Apache Stronghold continues the fight to protect Chi'chil Bildagoteel (Oak Flat). Each day that Rio Tinto does not build a copper mine is a victory. This Thursday morning, a delegation from the federal government will be arriving to meet with officials from the San Carlos Apache Tribe to discuss the proposed destruction of sacred land. The Stronghold will meet with them separately, to ensure the religious and spiritual impacts are included in their understanding of the injustice. Please send your prayers for this important meeting.
The Apache Stronghold will host the 8th Annual Oak Flat Run/Walk, February 17-20. Every year, we walk the 45 miles from San Carlos up to Oak Flat over several days. We are led with ceremony and prayer as we walk together in recognition of our responsibility to this earth and Creator. Please read on for details and be in touch with questions, particularly if you have not attended previously. All are welcome. Please share with your friends and family.
