WASHINGTON – A new federal report by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management details the  cultural and environmental threats posed by the Biden Administration’s plan to transfer Oak Flat to  a foreign-owned mining company.

The report adds even more evidence supporting tribal members’  effort to defend their sacred religious site in Apache Stronghold v. United States, a case currently at the  Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  

“Oak Flat is the place where Apache have connected with our creator since time immemorial” said  Dr. Wendsler Nosie, Sr. of Apache Stronghold. “This new report further validates what we have  been saying all along: giving Oak Flat away to Resolution Copper will destroy the land we depend  upon for our most important religious practices.”
