The mission of Black Mesa Trust is to safeguard, preserve and honor the sacred land and water of the Black Mesa and our Mother Earth for future generations.
Black Mesa Trust was founded in 1999 by the Hopi people to address the severe environmental impact and destruction that Peabody Coal Company’s water withdrawals (from the Navajo Aquifer) were having on the environment, and the cultures of the Hopi and Diné (Navajo) people living on Black Mesa. Over 30 years of groundwater pumping by Peabody has weakened the water pressure and the aquifers, causing many of our springs and washes to dry up.
We are committed to implementing advocacy initiatives and developing formal programs that educate and prepare our children for future leadership in regard to the stewardship of our land and sacred water.
We believe it is time for all of us to unite in defense of our sacred waters.
