The 550-word letter, titled, Requesting immediate Support for Hopi Partition Land ( HPL) residents whose livestock are being impounded by Hopi Rangers and Federal Agents, included this passage:
We [the undersigned] Dine’ families who have resided for generations on the area now known as Hopi Partition Land (HPL) are asking for the full protection of the Navajo Nation Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches, based on the ongoing threat of the pre-dawn raids from heavily armed federal authorities. Currently Hopi Rangers, Federal Special Weapons and Tactics Teams (SWAT) are using paramilitary tactics against unarmed elders and Dine’ citizens. Community members live in fear due to S.W.A.T. teams fully dressed in paramilitary gear including flack jackets and assault rifles. There are also drones and helicopters hovering over their homesteads, it is like a war zone.
If you’re in northeast Arizona or northwest New Mexico and want to assist, contact BMIS, who authored the post.
In case you were previously unaware, the Bureau of Indian Affairs outfit now housed under the Department of the Interior, used to be part of the Department of War.
