Hopi Elders Speak Out on Senate Bill 2109
A group of Hopi elders has added their voices against the Navajo-Hopi Little Colorado River Water Rights Settlement Act of 2012.
“For the first time in history the Traditional Hopi Elders from the Village to Shungopavi (the Mother Village) are stepping forward to speak to the public,” says the text accompanying the video. “They have a warning for the world. They say they have been told this time would come when the water would be taken from them. If this happens it will have an effect on the whole world as they are the microcosm of the world, of the universe.”
