Advocating for and Protecting Diné Lifeways on Black Mesa

Tó Nizhóní Ání (TNA) “Sacred Water Speaks” is a Diné-led nonprofit organization established in 2001. In 2005 TNA led efforts to end the industrial use of the Navajo Aquifer – Black Mesa’s only source of potable water, from Peabody Coal Company. TNA’s work is rooted in protecting the waters of Black Mesa while bringing power back to our Indigenous communities impacted by coal—Tó bee iiná. Water is life.
