Native Movement supports the important work of the Black Mesa Water Coalition (BMWC). BMWC was formed in 2001 by a group of young inter-tribal, inter-ethnic people dedicated to addressing issues of water depletion, natural resource exploitation, and public health within Navajo and Hopi communities. Since then BMWC has grown up in many ways, transforming from a small, unfunded, primarily reactionary student group to a well-established non-profit organization that utilizes proactive strategies such as green economic development. Today, BMWC is a leader in energy justice issues in the Southwest and around the country. True to their roots, BMWC's work is focused on the Black Mesa region. However, because of the region’s role as a "linchpin" for the energy infrastructure of the southwest, the potential impacts of our work span across the Navajo Nation, the southwest, and the country.
