Broken Rainbow filmBackground on extraction economy, water insecurity, and destruction of landbased lifeways (food sovereignty) on the Navajo Nation in relation to policy
Marla
51:36

Michelle Miller
51:37
Water extraction is also ensuring that crops are grown unsustainably in the southwest, so that then crops that could be grown in water rich regions, like the Great Lakes, can’t compete in markets. How do we fix this water imbalance in the system when economic power and the system that keeps it in place refuses to budge? To be just?
Marla
52:03
Sharing some resources from dana here:

Sheryll Durrant

Will these resources be sent to us as well as the recording?
Navina (HEAL)
01:07:35
from Gloria: As of June 3, 2020, there were 5,533 COVID-19 cases, 1,968 recovered, 36,637 have been tested or 17.8% of Navajo population .
Mishwa Lee
01:07:52
Is there a way we, who are from all over the usa, can put pressure on State of Az to reverse it's decision to end comment period on water rights?
Michelle Miller
01:08:06
Many of our Native Nations are located at the end of supply chains for food, in remote regions. What are the most immediate resources that are needed to raise food so it is increasingly unnecessary to bring food (esp junk food) in?
Michelle Miller
01:10:03
Could the link to Stephanie’s plan just on the screen be shared?
Carmen Cortez
01:11:21
what is the status of the water from the colorado valley in terms of contaminants from mining? How can we put pressure form outside to halt mining projects on Dine lands?
Monique Marez
01:11:30
From Jenn White: Would a load of fruit and vegetable plant starts and seeds be helpful for the farming effort?
Navina (HEAL)
01:12:43
We’ll collect those contacts from Dana & Gloria & Stephanie & send out to everyone who’s on this webinar
Paola Diaz
01:14:33
Are there plans for any of the funds to go into regional food infrastructure?
Navina (HEAL)
01:14:48
tolanilake.org
Carmen Cortez
01:15:31
…seems like another great infrastructure to look into is water harvesting systems, grain banks (to hold seeds and grains specially during these lean or moments of crisis) could be an economic effort as well with young people and along side the garden/farm efforts.
Rachel Portinga
01:16:28
Wondering about the status of seed security (shortage? bringing in or locally adapted) or seed exchange networks - do these exist?
Rachel Portinga
01:16:52
Thank you all!
