This series was taken on Black Mesa back in the 90s on the Navajo reservation. The Dine Elders, or Grandmothers, were in a desperate struggle with the Peabody Coal Company. Peabody was attempting to throw these traditional sheep herders off their land so it could exploit the rich coal deposits beneath the elder's feet. The struggle for the land the life of the Dine continues today.
