The Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act vs the San Carlos Apache Tribe

In the wee hours, self found herself skimming through the second half of Homeland Elegies. She found the narration of the author’s syphilis sort of — sorry — cringe.

The next book on her reading list: Oak Flat: A Fight for Sacred Land in the American West, by Lauren Redniss.

It lines up the US Govt against the San Carlos Apache Tribe, who do not want their land traded to Resolution Copper for the biggest copper mine in the history of copper mines.

There are some familiar names among the protagonists:

On the side of the US Govt, the following Senators: Joe Manchin (D) West Virginia; Jeff Flake (R) Arizona; John Barrasso (R) Wyoming; Ron Wyden (D) Oregon; Martin Heinrich (D) New Mexico; Mark Udall (D) Colorado; Michael Bennet (D) Colorado; Barbara Boxer (D) California. John McCain was unable to attend; he sent a prepared statement.

Facing off against them, the San Carlos Apache Tribe, aided by the National Wildlife Federation and the Sierra Club.
