🌳 Call to Prayer 10/21 🌳 we will be spending the day in prayer before our #ninthcircuit court case. We ask that you join us in San Francisco at the Civic Center (10am-2pm) or from wherever you are in the world. We ask that you pray with us that the Judges make the right choice to protect our Holy place and our religion. Please take a photo of a prayer or a message for Oak Flat and tag us, we’ll be sharing throughout the day to show that when we stand together in prayer, anything is possible.

Stay tuned, I will post updates

[10/06/21]   Early this morning at 3a, I resigned as Chief of Staff and Acting Secretary of Administration for the Chiricahua Apache Nation. I did my best to serve as a volunteer for this Nation over the past three years - to build something for upcoming generations and to uplift our women. I will continue to be of service in this world in ways that will be revealed. Thank you to those Citizens with whom I have interacted through email, by phone or text. The kindness you showed me will remain in my heart. May we meet on the path one day face to face. It was an honor.

Ixexe. Nan dus selth.
