Instagram: protectgrandcanyon🌧 🌧 ⛈ 🌧 ⛈ 🌧 ☁️ 🌧 🌧 🌧 The desert is breathing. The air is soft. Soils are active. Leaves are green and animals sip from puddles. Sighs of relief have replaced drought-driven desperation. Monsoon season has arrived. #protectgrandcanyonJuly 4. Independence Day. Whose independence? From what? While some men were able to declare independence from their oppression, real or perceived, we must remember those who weren't declared independent in the Declaration of Independence: women, native peoples (referred to in the document as "merciless Indian Savages"), and slaves. Ironically, one of the things that the white men who signed the Declaration did want is to stop the "obstruct[ion of] Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither"... hmmm, how times have changed. * * Perhaps on this July 4th we should be requesting a new Declaration, one that recognizes that *all* humans should have "unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness," a Declaration that rededicates native lands back to native peoples, and that re-asserts the ability for foreign peoples to seek shelter and independence amongst us. * * #4thofJuly #FourthofJuly #IndependenceDay #DeclarationofIndependence #history #holiday #ProtectSacredSites #indigenous #migration #mariposas #immigration #ColoradoRiver #GrandCanyon #GrandCanyonNationalPark #protectgrandcanyon #swim #DoWhatsrightLo-fi for that picture postcard effect.

Preposterous!😜 Despite the insistence of certain members of Congress, the real authorities tell us Flagstaff's economy is doing just fine without Snowbowl. The millionaire owners of our local ski resort, who showed no respect for their own employees when they laid them off recently with no warning at all and no severance pay, have gotten certain members of Congress to demand concessions from the Forest Service. Hey guys: you bought a ski resort with one road in and one road out, surrounded by pines, on top of a mountain. It’s a ski resort. In a national forest. Sometimes it has to close when the weather doesn’t comply with your wishes. It’s not the Forest Service’s fault. Do your due diligence before you purchase your business, just like the rest of us must. And learn to treat your people well, treat our forests well, treat our community well, and treat our Forest Service employees well! You have no respect for any of us. • • @azsnowbowl #flagstaff #coconinonationalforest #fire #snowbowel #snowbowl #respect #sanfranciscopeaks #dokooosliid #nuvatukyaoviFracking leases will soon be offered in Arizona!
