Tuesday, 09 August 2011 09:26 By Lucy Hall and Sarah E Lu, Vocalo | name.

Jeneda and Clayson Benally of the Native American punk band Blackfire  are suing the U.S. Forest Service over plans to turn Flagstaff's waste water into snow for a ski resort.

The ski resort lies atop the San Francisco peaks--mountains that are spiritually and culturally sacred to indigenous people in the region. 

This story comes to us from Truth-out. Check out Martha Sorren's article, "From the Reservation to the Airwaves: Navajo Band Battles Injustice."
