Protecting the Protectors of Mother Earth
The Hopi & Navajo Tribe live with a total reverence and respect for all things, and have done so since inheriting the land from their ancestors. They view their land as sacred and treat it as such, but they have encountered a monumental problem: their water has been tainted with deadly chemicals. It is time for the world to band together and protect the Hopi & Navajo, who have been protecting planet Earth for hundreds of years.
Arsenic 3, Arsenic 5, Uranium and Vanadium are all chemicals that have been found in the water supply on Hopi & Navajo land. The Arsenic levels are 2 to 4 times higher than the EPA allows as safe. Arsenic is known to cause many types of cancer including skin cancer, lung cancer, and prostate cancer, to name a few. Vanadium can cause vascular disease, paralysis, and can damage the entire nervous system. The two Tribe's have seen dramatic rises in diabetes and cancer in not only their elders, but the youth as well. The average lifespan of the natives who live on Hopi land is a staggering 47 years of age. Since 2017, The Hopi have been championing a new project called #NOARSENIC4HOPI that has helped raise awareness, but now it is our turn to help.
Because of your support we will be sending Reverse Osmosis filters to Hopiland for the school on First Mesa and hosting another event in Kirkland in June. to continue the momentum.
Many thanks for Ernest Taho of Black Mesa Trust who is overseeing implementation on the reservatiion
In his words
"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),
