the arizona snowbowl (the ski resort in flagstaff making snow from reclaimed waste water while desecrating a site considered sacred to 13 local tribes), is expanding. in 2012 i connected with local artists and activists asking them what they thought of the initial proposal to make snow from waste water. their responses were written on their faces, photographed and 2 murals were made in downtown flagstaff. with the news of the recent expansion, i returned to the sagacious words of diné musician, activist and filmmaker, klee benally and his wife, princess – “what we do the mountain, we do to ourselves.” thanks to everybody who stopped by and gave me love today. it’s always appreciated.
