“As it was in the beginning of our people one drum, one prayer, and one circle again
we must defend all of humanity with one drum, one prayer and one circle.” ~Dr. Wendsler Nosie Sr.
As the fight continues to protect Oak Flat and our religion the 9th Circut Court has scheduled our court hearing for October 22, 2021. The Apache Stronghold Spiritual Convoy to the 9th Circuit Court is underway.  The convoy, in prayer, will visit supporting Tribes leading to the 9th Circuit Court hearing to protect a Sacred and Holy land that God has blessed the World with Deities, Oak Flat. It is the United States intention to exchange the land to Rio Tinto & BHP's Resolution Copper for mining. All are welcome. If you know people along their route, help spread the word for other stops. | October 28, 2021 Apache-Stronghold News Release   Please continue to Pray for Oak Flat and pray for the court to make the right decision to protect our holy place and acknowledge our religion so our future generations have the right to pray and believe in the blessed gift creator has given us all our Mother Earth.

Please join the Apache Stronghold and people of all faiths from around the world for a day of prayer on Thursday, October 21, 2021.
