T’áá hwó ají t’éego and the end of the Navajo coal industry

Updated: Mar 19

Extractives@Clark presents Andrew Curley (Diné)

In 2021 the Navajo Generating Station, a long standing symbol of coal energy in the southwest, was demolished. The power plant ended operations the previous year, which signaled the end of coal mining in Black Mesa. In this presentation, Curley will discuss the deeper meaning and contestations of coal within the Navajo Nation and what the future holds for Diné people.
