Indigenous activists and others demanded a halt to construction of a 14.8 mile wastewater pipeline on the San Francisco Peaks, public land which is considered sacred to numerous indigenous groups in the area including the Diné (Navajo), Hopi, Zuni, Havasupai, Hualapai, Apache, Tohono O’Odoham and San Juan Southern Paiute. The pipeline is being built to bring treated sewage water up the mountain to make fake snow for a ski resort.
