Cardinal and University of Arizona Denied Apache Sacred Way of Life and Built Telescope on Mount Graham


Mount Graham Sacred Run

Vatican's Observatory on Mount Graham violates the Apache way of life, destroyed natural habitat,  and now desecrates sacred Mount Graham

New York Times article fails to document the role of Cardinal Sodano and the University of Arizona in denying the Apaches' sacred way of life and constructing a telescope on sacred Mount Graham

Cardinal Sodano and the University of Arizona led the denial of Apache's religious way of life and constructed the Vatican's Observatory on Mount Graham after years of efforts to protect the sacred mountain. The New York Times has an article on Sodano, pointing out his role in covering up sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, but the article does not document Sodano's role in desecrating Mount Graham and denying the sacred Apache way of life.

The University of Arizona often concealed its role and went so far as to have university security arrest Wendsler Nosie for trespass when he was praying on Mount Graham.

While the University hid its role in the desecration of Mount Graham, the University of Arizona continued to solicit and receive millions of dollars each year in grants based on Native Americans' needs, struggles and research.

The Vatican currently has a telescope on Mount Graham.
