Pure Clean Water for San Carlos Communities

Want to join us in making a difference? We the Nde People are raising money for San Carlos Apache Communities, and any donation will help to save lives and provide hope. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause-- our appreciation is sincere and heartfelt, and we seek the support of a candid world as our witness. Our community is going through a severe health crisis without a voice, as we have been silenced since these testing programs began in the 1950's. Our community is reaching out to a world who may or may not hear our message. Our hope to save the children and to save our culture-- the Pollen way known as "Walking in Beauty"-- is by helping make filtered water available to the Apache community, especially to our young families. Water Is Life, and clean filtered water is the only way for the Apache Peoples continued survival. Please join our community in raising enough for this first goal of achieving a portable filtration water station to provide free safe drinking water for the Apache communities. This is the beginning of what will become many campaigns for sufficient water stations throughout the reservation, to serve the 16,000 people of the San Carlos Apache community in health crisis right now. This is essential for our survival as a disadvantaged community kept in darkness over decades. There are another 15,000 Apache people to the north at White Mountain, our Relations, and we will not stop until all the Apache of this region have access to clean water. Thank you for taking the time to hear this message.  Our humble gratitude will remain eternal, and our respect is genuine. May peace be with you.

San Carlos Nation land, waters, plants, animals, and people were sprayed and tested upon with the herbicide Silvex, later known as Agent Orange, containing Dioxin and Furans which have poisoned drinking water wells on the 2 million acre reservation under Department of Interior continued management. Please help us bring clean water to the coming generations. We are enduring an undisclosed epidemic of terminal illness and serious health disorders, a true crisis turning into chaos. Arizona headwaters of the Apache reserves have long been kept a secret from the public until now. See "Agent Orange Apache" for the latest information on the EPA's RoundUp herbicide barrels which are reservation-wide, and the door-to-door ongoing search for where the arsenal of chemical weaponry, Rainbow Herbicides, is. These have since been outlawed, but this occurred in the last century. Apache lands were used as a chemical weapons disposal site and testing ground for the effects of Dioxins on humans. Dioxin is a sex-altering mutagen toxin, possibly one of the most dangerous chemicals ever created by mankind. When released in nature its ability to poison environments for many lifetimes is similar to Plutonium. Arizona leads in cancer statistics, with the San Carlos Apache Community as one of the highest concentrations. Thank you for your care and support to ensure there will be generations of the Apache people who may have a chance at life, as it literally means the survival of our culture.

Thank you for taking the time to hear our message.

Respectfully,

People of the Apache Nation
