NOHOOKA’ DINE’ HORSE RESOLUTION

The non-profit organization, SPIRET (Support & Protect Indigenous Rights and the Earth’s Teachings), has been asked to share the Nohooka’ Dine Horse Resolution. This is in light of the Navajo Nation’s decision to start rounding up wild horses with the intent to take them to slaughter.

Medicine people and elders from Black Mesa region of the reservation, known as Earth Surface Holy People or Nohooka’ Dine’, unanimously seek a different solution for the wild horses which honors all life.  Read more. 

On August 26, 2013, the elders and medicine peoples who do not read, write, nor speak English unanimously passed their resolution strongly opposing any and all actions by the Navajo Nation, the Department of Interior and the Department of Agriculture that leads to mass execution of the horses that have been illegally round-up.

The Noh00ka’Dine state that these governmental entities have not attained their free, prior and informed consent in violation of their rights outlined in the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. In addition, these illegal actions violate the Dine’ Way of Life and Our Responsibilities as Human Beings. Read entire Nohooka’ Dine Horse Resolution.
