This Summer, District 12 Chapters will be partnering with NavajoYES and Siihasin Bike Riders to build up a youth Mountain Bike Program!...
The program provides a “bike exchange” which youth and community members may earn a bike by putting in service time on local trails projects, at the bike work days or on other local projects.
If you are interested in donating bikes and/or volunteering your time and skills to help restore bikes, please contact Tom Riggenbach at 928.429.0345 or George Kelly at 505.215.0944
Celebrating Mother’s Day with all the mothers of the world today. She could have been your biological, clan, foster, in-law, sister, auntie, grandma but her love is unconditional. Be grateful for her songs because she embedded those teachings into you. Our Kin’yaanii clan paved the way for us with their positive prayers and stories. I am who I am because of all the mothers in my life.

DELEGATE IN ACTION: Attending Navajo Nation Public Meeting on Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) at Churchrock Chapter. Next meeting will be held in Shiprock this summer.
Navajo Nation needs to lobby for full health benefits and compensation for uranium miners. They gave their life for their families and Nation. They were not provided protection from radioactive material which was transferred to their spouse and children through hugs.
The message here is to support the moratorium against uranium mining and to lobby for RECA expansion to post ‘71 miners and beyond 2022.

- Consult with an attorney who can help you navigate through the legal process and may be able to help you get the images taken down.
