How You Can Help

If reading any of what’s written above motivates you to act in support of these communities, please consider the following actions:

1. Send an email, letter, or call the Gila River Indian Community tribal council members. As Lori Riddle said, hearing that other communities do care about the Gila River Indian Community can help persuade them. Here’s a list of current (2013) Tribal Council members:

2. Donate resources or time to Black Mesa Indigenous Support (http://supportblackmesa.org/). This organization supports families on the ground in the disputed lands between Hopi and Navajo reservations, and works to repeal the Relocation Law to allow Navajo families to return to their ancestral lands.

3. Get informed and stay informed about local (and national, and international) indigenous rights struggles. Several good resources include:

Black Mesa Water Coalition

Gila River Against Loop 202

O’odham Solidarity Project

And there are many, many more that can be found both on- and off line.
