Big Mountain Gathering at the Dineh Community of Sweet Water, 30 years ago. For some, certain people may be familiar. You see for instance Elder, Matriarch and Leader Roberta Blackgoat, Elder Matriach Catherine Smith and Elder matriarch Pauline Whitesinger, in the photo, along with other Dineh women and men. The BM Resistance 30 years Anniversary against coalmining and forced relocation was held in this same spot on October 6 2007.

Generations of Dineh men at the celebration. How does this world, look to them, you think? They live far away from the "modern conveniences" we in the western world, take for granted. The Dineh communities do not have electricity or running water in them, yet the Navajo reservation produce and deliver electricity to most major cities in the southwest, like for instance Las Vegas..

Dineh Men
Catherine Smith

ELDER and Matriarch Catherine Smith. This strong Grandmother has never bowed to the manmade authority laws. She repeats over and over that the Dineh adhere to the great Natural Laws. The authority that she knows as hers lies with the great forces of Nature, that no man can master.
