In Defense of the Sacred
Years of defending our homelands and ways of life, continue today with the United States Commander in Chief leading the attack. This is a strategy to continue the legacy of the United States government.
As original peoples of Turtle Island it is not in our human concept and humanity to disturb human remains and human historical ancient communities for extractive industries gains.
In the O’odham historic ancient community Oak Flat region, there is the latest attack. It is an attempt to erase the existence of an advanced and extensive culture that existed for many thousands of years, before carbon testing, and long before anthropologists and all its subcategories, and ethnologists' theories, on human cultures on Turtle Island.
In this 21st century, world organizations recognize, and world states and local governments have created written laws and regulations with protocols, to protect places of historic significance and ancient burial places.
The mining company Resolution Copper of Australia plans to cover up an ancient O’odham historic cultural community with mining tailings.

This is evidence that state governments -- which include partnering countries, the United States and local governments -- have manipulated written protective laws for the benefit of industries, and continue the legacy concept of neo-capitalism.
Today, I stand to defend all life, plants, animals, water, and air to say stop Resolution Copper from destroying 14,218 acres of land.
Today, again I stand with the Elders and ceremonial people to say we oppose Resolution Copper's mining plans to destroy and erase our historic ancient proof of our united and vast societies of O’odham. We are the descendants of the Greater Huhukam culture.
