The Fight to Save Chaco

When looking at a map of the area, the red dots that mark oil and gas sights make it appear as if your map suddenly had chickenpox. It is truly astounding when it is put into perspective. When these sites are created, it isn’t just a singular spot. Roads, cement pads, wastewater ponds, and debris fields are created. Not only is the land hurting, but the people as well, fracking in recent years has many concerned with health including local Dine’ communities. Groups like  Diné Citizens Against Ruining Our Environment (Diné CARE) have voiced their concerns not only to the feds but to their own Navajo Nation leadership.
