Seven years ago, the Havasupai Indians, who live amid the turquoise waterfalls and red cliffs miles deep in the Grand Canyon, issued a "banishment order" to keep Arizona State University employees from setting foot on their reservation — an ancient punishment for what they regarded as a genetic-era betrayal. Members of the tiny, isolated tribe had given DNA samples to university researchers starting in 1990, in the hope that they might provide genetic clues to the tribe's devastating rate of diabetes. But they learned that their blood samples had been used to study many other things, including mental illness and theories of the tribe's geographical origins that contradict their traditional stories. In this video from FNIGC's 2011 National Conference to announce the release of RHS Phase 2 (March 1, 2011), members of the Havasupai Nation, Dianna Sue Uqualla and Carletta Tilousi, discuss their long fight to control research about their people.

"Arctic to Amazonia" From "Across the Americas: Indigenous Perspectives" Part of the "Turning Tide: The Robbie Leppzer Collection" Available for Purchase at http://www.der.org/films/across-the-americas.html by Robbie Leppzer color, 21 min, 1993 From the Arctic to the Amazon, much of our world's fragile ecosystem is at risk. Multinational corporations and government development projects often engage in practices which threaten not only the environment, but the survival of indigenous cultures. To discuss this growing problem, representatives of Native communities from around the world came to Smith College to attend the week-long Arctic to Amazonia Tribal Lands Conference. Arctic to Amazonia features Native activists from North and South America presenting first-hand information on the impact of industrial development upon their land and cultures. They review the history of European colonization in the Americas, critique destructive patterns of consumerism, and contrast indigenous perspectives on the environment with corporate world views. In excerpts from speeches presented at the conference, indigenous representatives talk about the struggles of Native communities to protect their land against ecological destruction. These battles range from northern Quebec, where the Cree and Inuit peoples are fighting massive hydro-dam projects, to Arizona, where the Havasupai oppose plans to mine uranium near the Grand Canyon, to the Brazilian jungles, where numerous Amazonian peoples have won important victories in the campaign to protect the tropical rain forest. As the threat of global environmental disaster looms over us, mainstream society can learn much from Native peoples. Arctic to Amazonia is an effective catalyst for discussion of environmental issues from an indigenous perspective.

WATCH MORE: http://RasTafari.TV From Robert Roskind, author of "Rasta Heart: A Journey into One Love."Our visits there had unraveled the mystery of why yet another ancient and isolated tribe were Bob Marley and reggae fans. We had met with Supai Waters, one the tribal members who in the 1970s brought Bob's music there to uplift the vibes in the village. Soon afterwards, tribal members got battery-operated tape decks (there was no electricity in the village then) and started listening to his music. Bob had planned to visit the tribe but died before he could make it there. A year later, in 1982, Bob's mother, Mama B, honored her son's wishes by visiting the village, along with Tyrone Downey, a member of Bob's band. In front of Havasu Falls, their sacred waterfall, many of the tribe gathered as Mama B sang Bob's songs. Many remember her visit as the high moment in recent tribal history.

A Havasupai man was arrested for two counts of animal abuse this summer. Cecil Watahomigie was accused for abusing at least one of the horses after years of letting paying tourists and packing horses through Havasupai canyon. The veterinarian giving medical attention to the horse stated the horse was in worse conditions than the tribal regulations allowed. Michelle Ryan, a representative of Coconino Humane Association, expresses her relief that the animals are seeking help from these situations. This is the second time in U.S. history where a member of the tribe was arrested for animal abuse.

The Grand Canyon is one of the most amazing natural wonders of the world, more than 5 million people visit the rim at Grand Canyon National Park every year, but very few will ever see it from the Colorado River. Access to the Grand Canyon via river is strictly regimented, to protect fragile ecosystems and to preserve Native American heritage at a place they consider sacred. For years, the Grand Canyon has been steeped in controversial land development proposals that could change this landmark forever. Developments like the Grand Canyon Escalade would bring as many as 10,000 tourists per day to the shore of the river on a gondola, restrictions on uranium mining may be lifted, public land is losing federal protection, and housing developments put strain on an already lacking supply of water and natural resources. Our documentary will take you on an incredible journey, in VR, to the sacred sites in the heart of the wilderness that would be impacted by these developments. It is our hope that you'll be convinced that the Grand Canyon is worth preserving and protecting, as it is. Full documentary coming in early 2018!

The U.S. mining industry asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday to overturn an Obama-era rule, that prohibits the mining of uranium on public lands adjacent to the Grand Canyon. The National Mining Association (NMA) and the American Exploration and Mining Association (AEMA) filed the petitions, wanting to reverse a 2012 ban on uranium mining claims on more than one million acres of public land adjacent to the canyon. Conservation groups think the ban should remain in place until scientists have time to study the contamination risks. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/3_OtHuOycUc/u-s-miners-seek-reversal-of-uranium-mining-ban-near-grand-canyon-idUSKCN1GM001 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

The Native Indians Village Supai, The American Indian Tribes of Arizona Although the Grand Canyon in Arizona is one of the most visit-able and popular destinations, it still has its secrets. One of these is the Indian Village Supai or Havasupai located at the bottom of Havasu Canyon, possibly the most isolated village in the United States. The Havasupai people are an American Indian tribe who have lived in the Grand Canyon for at least the past 800 years and is the smallest Indian Nation in America, with about 600 people, This native american language speak Yuman. Havasu means “blue-green water” and pai “people”. The village has been inhabited by the Havasupai since A.D. 1300. Tourism is the main source of revenue for the Havasupai tribal people. The town receives more than 20,000 visitors per year. The Tribe charges for entering its land, and visitors are required to reserve either a room at their lodge, or space at the campground for grand canyon camping. In the village of Supai itself has a store, cafe, lodge and museum for tourists. Havasupai Museum of Culture displays the history, native american culture, art and traditions of the Havasupai as well as hosts social gatherings, such as dance, feasts, art fairs and native american music festivals. Havasupai Trail is the only trail to Supai. The trailhead is at Hualapai Hilltop, Arizona (located at the end of BIA Road 18), where there is a large parking lot, a helipad and portable toilets. The trail can be traveled by foot or horseback. Alternatively, transportation by helicopter is periodically available. As a means of survival, the tribal people has turned to tourism, attracting thousands of people annually to its streams and waterfalls. Havasu Falls is located 2.4 km from Supai. It consists of one main chute that drops over a 27 to 30 meters vertical cliff into a large pool. Due to the high mineral content of the water, the configuration of the falls is ever-changing and sometimes breaks into two separate chutes of water. The falls are known for their natural pools, created by mineralization, although the configuration of the falls and the pools are damaged or destroyed repeatedly by large floods that wash through the area. High calcium carbonate concentration in the water creates the vivid blue-green color and forms the natural travertine dams that occur in various places near the falls. Havasu Creek is the life blood of the Havasupai tribe and their main source of tourism revenue. Mooney Falls, The Falls are located 2.25 miles from Supai, just past the campgrounds. The trail leads to the top of the falls, where there is a lookout/photograph area that overlooks the 210-foot canyon wall that the waterfall cascades over. In order to gain access to the bottom of the falls and its pool, a very rugged and dangerous descent is required. Extreme care and discretion for the following portion is required; it is highly exposed and should not be attempted when the weather and/or conditions are not suitable.

Native American tribes associated with the Grand Canyon are proposing a bill that will limit uranium mining in the Grand Canyon area. U.S. Representative Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) attended an event in Flagstaff to announce the proposed legislation. The bill, if passed by Congress, would protect 1.7 million acres of land around the canyon. Navajo president Russell Begay also attended the event, where he spoke about the history of uranium contamination on Navajo lands. Currently, there are few restrictions of Uranium mining in the Grand Canyon area. Tribal representatives like Carletta Tilousi say it is important to fight for protection of land in the Grand Canyon area.

Hike To Supai Village Rahasya - 2019 A little history; For over 1,000 years the remote village of Supai, Arizona, located eight miles hike below the rim of the Grand Canyon, has been home to the Havasu Baaja, People of the Blue Green Waters, or as they are known today, the Havasupai Tribe. Just above the village, a hidden limestone aquifer gushes forth the life sustaining blue green waters that have nourished the fields of corn, squash and beans which have allowed the Havasu Baaja to thrive living in the harsh desert landscape deep in the Grand Canyon for centuries. This remoteness creates many obstacles for residents and visitors alike.

Grand Canyon tourists were 'exposed to unsafe levels of radiation': http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6718703/Grand-Canyon-tourists-exposed-unsafe-levels-radiation.html. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqi7z1Xa_8CBhQStlApH8ww?sub_confirmation=1 Tourists, employees and children on tours were exposed to radiation from uranium sitting in the Grand Canyon's museum collection building for nearly two decades, according to the park's safety manager.In a rogue email sent to all Park Service employees, Elston 'Swede' Stephenson, the park's safety, health and wellness manager warned of possible health consequences after alleging that between 2000 and June 18, 2018, five-gallon containers containing uranium ore, were stored next to a taxidermy exhibit, as reported by USA Today. 'If you were in the Museum Collections Building (2C) between the year 2000 and June 18, 2018, you were 'exposed' to uranium by OSHA's definition,' Stephenson wrote alleging a cover-up by the park and describing it as 'a top management failure.' According to Stephenson the uranium had been moved to the museum building from a basement at the park. He said the containers were in an area where children on tours sometimes stopped for presentations, sitting near to them for 30 minutes or more.He alleges close exposures to the uranium buckets could by his calculations have exposed adults to 400 times the health limit and for children up to 4,000 times what is considered safe. Stephenson added that one of the buckets was so full that it was brimming with uranium and its lid would not close. In a separate email to David Bernhardt, acting interior secretary and Deputy Inspector General Mary Kendall, Stephenson said he had asked National Park executives on a number of occasions to inform the public, only to get 'stonewalled.''Respectfully, it was not only immoral not to let Our People know,' he added, 'but I could not longer risk my (health and safety) certification by letting this go any longer,' he wrote. In an interview with USA Today, Stephenson said he was assisting with a safety audit when employees told him about the uranium.He then contacted a National Parks specialist in Colorado. Technicians traveled to the Grand Canyon several days after his call, on June 18, last year. The technicians came to the park with a Ludlum meter, which also measures radiation output. They didn't have protective clothing so they used dish-washing and gardening gloves and a broken mop handle to lift the buckets 'containing uranium' into a truck, Stephenson said. Stephenson's account appears to be corroborated by photographs in a 45-page slideshow intended to document the alleged cover-up. Stephenson said the technicians didn't tell him what the radiation readings were and dumped the ore into Orphan Mine, an old uranium dig, a few miles away from the Grand Canyon village. Stephenson said he filed a report with OSHA, which sent inspectors to the museum building in yellow protective suits.He said he could hear the inspectors 'meters going off' and that they detected a low-level site within the building, tracing it to three buckets, which Park Service technicians had returned to the building after dumping their contents.

Last month secretary of the interior Ken Salazar announced a 6 month emergency withdrawal of new hard-rock mining claims on the Arizona Strip. This is an extension to the two year segregation that was set to expire on July 21st. The BLM is currently responding to comments on the draft EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) and finalizing the Final EIS to turn over to the Secretary of the interior to make the final decision. Malia Bascom investigates the pros and cons of Uranium Mining on the Arizona Strip. What would a 20 year withdrawal from future uranium mining claims mean to the economies of Southern Utah Counties Like Kane, Garfield, San Juan, and Washington? What are the concerns of Mohave and Coconino County in Arizona where the mining would take place?
