In exchange for giving up their rights to water in 1969, the Navajo and Hopi were promised they’d be returned to them in fifty years. As we approach that deadline, Arizona Senators Kyl and McCain are rushing a bill through the senate to keep control in the hands of the coal and electric companies instead of the Native Americans. Recently about 300 protestors gathered to say to the senators: “NO DEAL” and “KILL THE BILL” S2109, which would allow for more water control for the benefit of coal and electric companies and urban growth.  Protesters chanted “Water Is Life”, “Free Indian Water Ends Now”, and “Let the Water Flow.” Today’s guest is Marshall Johnson, who has been at the forefront of the grassroots environmental movement on Navajo land.
