In October of 2011, we traveled to Flagstaff, AZ and were able to meet up with Jeneda and Clayson Benally of the Save The Peaks Coalition and the Navajo nation based punk band Blackfire. In the video, Jeneda and Clayson discuss the desecration of the sacred San Francisco Peaks and what this cultural genocide means to the indigenous community. They also touch on the disrespect and exploitation that is being put on the 13 different tribal nations in the south west and how it is interconnected to the bigger picture of racism and genocidal policies of the past.
