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.

Navajo practitioners have offered their support for the Grand Canyon Escalade Project. Contrary to what the Grand Canyon Trust wants us to believe, the GCE project has received many letters of support from traditional Navajo and NAC practitioners from the Western region of the Navajo Nation since 2012. Many of these practitioners have made prayers and offerings on behalf of the development and for the sake of their families and friends who live in the area. Here are what some had to say in support of the project: “I have found that the way of life that’s known to...

Escalade for Water Projects

The Grand Canyon Escalade project is intended to provide a platform for economic opportunity in the Former Bennett Freeze (FBF) area. Not only will the development attract over one-million visitors per year providing 3,500 jobs directly and indirectly, but it will bring very needed infrastructure. Water is the most beneficial and important resource to bring to an area deprived of development for over 40 years. According to a recent article about the Navajo Nation water crisis, 40% of the 173,000 residents of Navajo Nation lack access to clean, safe drinking water. It affects every aspect of daily life, including...

Escalade for Economic Sustainability

The Grand Canyon Escalade project will help provide economic sustainability to the Navajo Nation. The project will create 3,500 jobs in various industries from entry level to executive management positions. Generating revenues through taxes and developing the workforce will be major benefits to the Navajo economy and the people. Currently, the government relies on the development of mineral resources to fund its operation. This is a dangerous position for the Navajo Nation, as coal is at its lowest selling cost in decades and Peabody Energy is on the verge of Bankruptcy. Also, EPA’s Clean Power Plan will force Navajo...
