The Grand Canyon Escalade project has been a scene of controversy ever since the Navajo Nation announced its plans to develop the area into a tourist destination. American Indians with many tribes, including the Hopi Tribe and Navajo Nation, see the area as a sacred site. Recently a group of Navajos formed the activist group Save the Confluence who are opposed to the development of the Grand Canyon Escalade project.
The group released a video called Save the Confluence on November 5, to help raise awareness to the area and the project the group sees as threatening a way of life. As Loenard Sloan says in the video below, “There are things you can’t sacrifice and this is one of it.”
