Arizona Snowbowl’s development plans include clear-cutting 74 acres of rare alpine habitat that is home to threatened species, making new runs and lifts, adding more parking lots and building a 14.8 mile buried pipeline to transport up to 180 million gallons (per season) of wastewater to make artificial snow on 205 acres.This week Arizona Snowbowl has begun the construction of the wastewater pipeline on the holy San Francisco Peaks, located in Northern Arizona. The Peaks are central to the ways of life of more than 13 Indigenous Nations.

What part of NO, do these people Not understand.

Mother Earth has enough problems, without destroying he even more.. These radicals extremeist need to leave things the way they were. Instead of destroying everything in their path.
These people need to be Stopped, before there is nothing left. Including Not to be using using waste water for Snow Fest? If they want to do these Corrupted Projects, they can do it in their own back yards. And leave what’s left of Mother Earth & her People Alone!!!

7/14/20 - We are shutting down our shop for now (hopefully not too long!) as we have shifted our organizing to focus full time on mutual aid through Kinłani Mutual Aid during this pandemic.
We intend on honoring all orders made recently and those that are seriously overdue. We sincerely apologize for our lack of response to some of your inquiries regarding the status of your orders. If you would rather have a refund please email us with the order number and subject "requesting refund." We hand print all shirts and organize orders at Táala Hooghan Infoshop where Kinłani Mutual Aid is now operating out of. We have limited space to manage printing right now (though that may change in the next few weeks).
Again, we sincerely apologize for this issue and will be sending all outstanding orders ASAP.
Ahe' hee',
