Black Mesa has one of the largest remaining coal deposits in the U.S. More than 14,000 Dine’ (Navajo) people have been forcibly removed from their ancestral homelands by the US Government working with Peabody Coal Company to expand their mines into this sacred land.

Dine’ families are now in their THIRD DECADE resisting this travesty. Many resisters are elderly and the winters can be very rough. With the guidance of the Black Mesa elders, the aim of this benefit is to raise funds for their priorities and to support a caravan of volunteers to chop and haul firewood, do minor repair work, and help with sheep herding during the week of Thanksgiving- right before the cold winter months arrive.
