January 30, 2017
President Donald Trump wants to build a wall across tribal lands? “Over my dead body,” the Tohono O’odham Nation’s Vice ChairmanVerlon Jose told Tucson.Com back in July.
His colleague, Tribal Chairman Edward Manuel added:
“We have animals that migrate back and forth, and when you start affecting one animal, it’s going to change the entire ecological system. The plants that grow here rely on some of those animals, the animals rely on each other and we have to rely on all those in order to survive in our way of life.”
