Rumble on the Mountain, ‘The Ongoing Legacy of Uranium Mining on the Colorado Plateau’, takes place at the Coconino Center for the Arts on Saturday, January 19, 2019. Doors open at 1pm and the event begins at 1:30pm.
In response to recent assaults on lands held sacred by Arizona tribes on both federal and state levels, two ‘edutainment’ (a combination of education and entertainment) events will be held in Flagstaff on January 19, 2019. The show will combine traditional dances, cultural voices, and musical performances with educational presentations that explore links between uranium mining and the illegal shrinkage of the Bears Ears National Monument.
Talents and voices featured at Rumble on the Mountain V include Vernon Masayesva, Lyle Balenquah, Haul NO!, Davona Blackhorse, Ed Kabotie, The Havasupai Youth Ram Dancers, Hopi Dance Group , Ryone Polequaptewa, and World Champion Hoop Dancer Derrick Davis, current works from the Rumble Arts Collective, and live art from Jerrel Singer.
Proceeds from a live art auction will go to support the efforts of HaulNO! Rumble on the Mountain V, ‘The Ongoing Legacy of Uranium Mining on the Colorado Plateau’, will be an experience of music, art, and education about sacred and threatened lands of the Plateau.
Organizer Ed Kabotie says, “The Rumble and the Aftershock remind us that we’re in a fight for the people and lands of the Colorado Plateau. The fight is not against individuals or institutions, but rather, paradigms and philosophies that motivate our consumer habits. Anyone who flicks a switch or turns a faucet is part of the problem. The Rumble and the Aftermath are cries for a conscious awakening in our hearts and minds about how our modern lifestyles affect the health of the indigenous people and lands of this world.”
Rumble on the Mountain V, ‘The Ongoing Legacy of Uranium Mining on the Colorado Plateau’, will be an experience of music, art, and education about sacred and threatened lands of the Plateau.
