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 Prayer, One Circle
There is a call to action with our prayers. If your church or organization would like to support the Apache Stronghold’s appeal within the U.S. legal system of courts, there is one very important, practical step you can take: sign onto a Court brief Before October 24. Right now several different attorneys are preparing several different briefs in support of the appeal. These “friend-of-thecourt” (or “amicus”) briefs are very important in convincing the Courts of the importance of the case. If your organization would like to join one of these briefs please contact the attorneys at the Becket Fund: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. They can help direct you to the appropriate brief and answer any questions you might have. And although the deadline for these briefs is October 24, it is important to reserve your place on a brief ASAP. Download PDF for more information.
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.
