Greetings,

 I am honored to be here writing you this update report during these times. It's been a year since the Hopi reservation has been in lock down with security check points set up at the enterences of all 12 village to help control with stopping the spreading of the virus. The project has still been moving forward but with a very slow pace due to the villages being closed to residents only. Now that the numbers of people being tested positive has been dropping and more people are getting vaccinated, the tribe has been working on getting the reservation open with new protocols in place. I have now been able to go into some of the villages to do filter installations as well as installing the newly received Reverse Osmosis Systems that were purchased from your contributions to the project, for that I say thank you (Kwahkw`a). I would like to also mention that our project is giving support to the Village of Tewa "Zero Water" filter project to help increase life span of their filter thus increasing the amount of clean water per filter before changing, I will be the water consultant for their project. Together the NOARSENIC4HOPI Project and the Tewa Zero Water Filter Project will continue the efforts of getting clean water for the people. We have also reached out to the Navajo in the White Cone area of Arizona with a true water protector in lead by the name of Vanessa Dundon. She was given 18 counter top units to start with for her community and the surrounding communities.

Hello Friends,

A team from Airline Ambassadors, the Isa Foundation & Clean Water Foundation delivered the first 21 Reverse Osmosis units as well as 100 Wellness manuals, shirts and masks for children last October as the reservation was still on lockdown, We were met by Ernest and Albert,of Hopiland in Sedona at the home of Martha Childress of the Natural Choice Network.  They gave us background on the serious problem faced by residents there and loaded up a truck to drive the filters and supplies to the reservation that evening. 

Ernest and Albert began installations for needy families and  Velleda, a teacher from the Hopi tribe distributed the shirts, masks and wellness manuals to 100 families during a turkey giveaway on Nov. 20. You can see  the story at this link https://airlineamb.org/clean-water-for-hopi/

Since that time we provided for the purchase and installation of 47 more filters which we have shipped to Sedona and they will soon be picked up to meet the pressing need! 

We will highlight this project on World Water Day on Monday, March 22, 2021 and planning a virtual fundraiser and a concert on the Hopi reservation once the lockdown is lifted

In the words of Ernest Taho of Black Mesa Trust

"I would like to say a big thank you to you all who have generously given to this project, may the creator bless you and your families with safe and healthy lives"

Kwahkw`a (Thank You),

Let's Keep on Keeping on.

Greeting All,

We would like to get you up to speed with this project. The Black Mesa Trust #NOARSENIC4HOPI PROJECT started in the later months of 2017 to address the water issue that plague the Hopi's after the 2001 deceision to drop the EPA standards for Arsenic which then made Hopi incomplience with the regulations. The majoried of the problem which still exisits years later is funding the H.A.M.P. Project (Hopi Arsenic Mitagation Project). A lot of the project started out with outreach with doing presentation outside of the Hopi Reservation to gain awareness to our problem. In the process Black Mesa Trust was able to draw more help from other nonprofit organizations up till today.
