Exploration Three

"If you transplant me elsewhere I will not grow, I'll just die", This was said by Roberta Blackgoat when referring to what would happen should she be removed from the land of her ancestors. She is currently fighting the relocation of the Navajo sheepherders who found themselves on the wrong side of a border dispute. I am amazed that people are still trying to force them to leave now in this generation when the original dispute happened in the 1970's. Even after all this time they are still protesting and refusing to leave the land given to them in the first agreement and will continue to protest against moving however long it takes.
