Relocation is genocide.
"I will die fighting this law. I am doing it for my children and my grandchildren and your children and their children. It is everybodys future." -Roberta Blackgoat
"The Big Mountain matriarchal leaders always believed that resisting forced relocation will eventually benefit all ecological systems, including the human race," says Bahe Keediniihii, Dineh organizer and translator. "Continued residency by families throughout the Big Mountain region has a significant role in the intervention of Peabody’s future plan for Black Mesa coal to be the major source of unsustainable energy, the growing dependency on fossil fuel, and escalating green house gas emissions. We will continue to fight to defend our homelands."
"There is no word for relocation in the Navajo language. To relocate is to disappear and never be seen again." - Pauline Whitesinger, Big Mountain elder
