Notice: Confusion about Donations
Over the past few days, we have received a flood of phone calls and messages, asking if donations are needed by Apache Stronghold. Apparently, some individuals or organizations in the Phoenix area are using social media to request donations of food, camping gear, electronics, gas cards, and other items for "the Community Protecting Oak Flat." However, we want to clarify that these requests have not been made by the Apache Stronghold. We are pleased that so many people want to help protect Oak Flat, but we also want to make clear that these requests for donations are not coming from Apache Stronghold. Ahi’yi’é (thank you)
CALL TO PRAYER AND ACTION with the Apache Stronghold to Protect Sacred Chi'chil Biłdagoteel (Oak Flat) and To Heal All People and Our Earth With One Drum, One Circle, One Prayer.

Dr. Wendsler Nosie Sr., long time opponent of the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and former Chairman and Councilman of the San Carlos Apache Tribe, reacts to the passage of the Southeastern Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act in December 2014.
"The greatest sin of the world has been enacted by Arizona Senator McCain, Senator Flake, and Representatives Kirkpatrick and Gosar of Arizona by including the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange in the National Defense Authorization Act (2015). We are calling on all religious faiths, & military veterans, for this country was founded on freedom of speech, religion and worship, which has been given away to a foreign mining company."
"They declared war on our religion, we must stand in unity and fight to the very end, for this is a holy war."
"We remember those who sacrificed and defended our people. We recognize our great leaders and their respect for those who know freedom. We must guide our people to, once again, hold our destiny in our own hands. I challenge each of us to overcome the oppression and begin the process of believeing in ourselves. This must be the first step... Usen, we ask for your blessing to guide our current and future leadership so that our children and the unborn will inherit our Apache Way of Life." - Wendsler Nosie Sr.
