Mt. Taylor declared Traditional Cultural Property!!
On June 5, 2009, the Traditional Cultural Property site designation for Mt. Taylor passed unanimously. The year-long challenging process culminates with Mt. Taylor being listed on the State Register of Cultural Properties. The protected area is more than half the size of Rhode Island. It includes 439,000 acres, or 686 square miles, around the 11,301-foot summit of the western New Mexico mountain and five mesas surrounding it.
The designation requires consultation with those indigenous tribes who filed the TCP necessary before moving forward with projects that might impair or harm sacred sites. This is a wonderful outcome for earth, all people of New Mexico and sacred sites; one which the Partnership celebrates and congratulates all who worked toward this effort. May we continue to work addressing the care of water and concerns of uranium mining in this area.
Desert Rock Power Plant, proposed
coal fire power plant near Farmington, NM would greatly increase CO
2 emissions in New Mexico. Some Navajo People are opposing the plant,
even though the Navajo Nation has agreed to have the plant. A coalition
of groups including NM Interfaith Power and Light worked to oppose
a tax incentive for the plant. Click here to learn more.
Now, webmaster Dorothy “Bunny” Bowen is seeking reciprocal
links from those listed, and in the course of her inquiries discovered
even more organizations and programs that everybody should know about.
