Adam Dolezal and Kim Smith, Dine Action Camp

For close to a century, the Navajo homelands have provided energy and water to the mega cities of the Southwest United States while approximately a fourth of Dine people live without electricity and running water. Adam Dolezal and Kim Smith have established the Dine Action Camp, which partners Dine activists with the organization Dyspatch, to host an action camp focused on taking action against decolonization and extractive industries. The purpose of the camp is to build sustainable communities and raise awareness around a vast energy corridor that strips the earth to provide coal-fired electricity, fracked oil and water to those outside the Dine land.
