Looking Back and Looking Forward, Thoughts on Escalade

To me, the Navajo Nation President and Council have no choice but to formally move forward with serious consideration and examination of the project. Yes, there are many issues still to resolve, yes there is much scrutiny, due diligence and underwriting to be done. There will have to be appraisals, environmental assessments, cultural reviews, and evidence of financial capacity presented by Confluence Partners before the final green light is given. If the project proves to be unworkable so be it. But to do nothing? That would be the worst of all outcomes. But then, I come from a world of logic and reason and cause and effect, not the world of politics and emotion that this project has found itself in.

Grand Canyon Escalade Opposes Outside Interests

Save the Confluence and Grand Canyon Trust are said to have paid people to protest the development of the Escalade project and the continued development of oil and coal resources on the Navajo Nation. There are also rumors of Navajo leadership taking money to take a stance against such developments and work against their own people. These actions undermine the sovereignty of the Navajo Nation to decide what is in the best interest of its people.
