Occupying Sacred Oak Flat, Resisting Resolution Copper Mine
By Sandra Rambler, San Carlos Apache
"WE ARE APACHES AND WE NEVER GIVE UP. WE ARE HERE IN PRAYER AND STILL OCCUPYING OUR SACRED ANCESTRAL LAND. CREATOR GOD GAVE US THIS LAND TO TAKE CARE OF AND TO CONTINUE OUR HOLY CEREMONIES. WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE CARE OF OUR SACRED SITES AND WE WILL BE BLESSED FOR OUR SACRIFICES MADE IN BEHALF OF OUR MOTHER EARTH. WE ARE STILL HERE AT CHI'CHIL'BILDA'GOTEEL."
--Anthony Logan, Apache Holy Ground Medicine Man at Chi'Chil'Bilda'Goteel (Oak Flat) in southeast Arizona where occupation continues today. Pictured with him are Apache tribal elders.
