Apache Spring: The Fight for Oak Flat

Oak Flat—once part of an Apache reservation—is considered sacred space by the local tribe but it was awarded to a mining company through a defense bill in 2014 and will be completely destroyed. Now the tribe has occupied the land and refuses to leave, claiming their freedom of religion is being infringed upon.
