The evening will also include a private screening of the new film Ours is the Land, and our featured guest speaker will be our esteemed attorney Van Wolf, who will give us an update on where things stand with our Air Quality Permit Appeal case, as well as talk about the role litigation will play as the proposed Rosemont mine project moves forward. We hope to see you there!
If you can't make it to our fundraiser, we hope you will show your support in another way. How about signing up to help at our info table at an upcoming event?
And as always, we can use your financial support, especially now that we must defend our win in the Rosemont Air Quality Permit Appeal case. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today to SSSR! Thank you!
Two new films highlight the need to protect the Santa Ritas!
Premiere of new documentary film FLIN FLON FLIM FLAM
Tucson Premiere of the film OURS IS THE LAND
The film tells the story of the Tohono O'odham's deep connection to the Santa Rita Mountains or Ce:wi Duag which are imperiled by the proposed Rosemont Copper mine.
“Ours is the Land” is the new short documentary film that depicts in vivid and powerful detail the spiritual, cultural and physical connection of the Tohono O’odham people of Arizona to Ce:wi Duag, or the Santa Rita Mountains, which is imperiled by the proposed creation of the mile-wide, half mile deep Rosemont open pit copper mine.
The film is told entirely from the perspective of the Tohono O’odham Nation members themselves including Legislative Council members, and tribal elders who speak movingly about the important connection between Ce:wi Duag and the Tohono O’odham Nation. Adding poignancy to the film is the score of Michael Enis, Tohono O’odham tribal member and song dreamer.
