If Congress passes this bill, it will allow the owners of Resolution Copper to "desecrate the aboriginal homeland of the Apache People.

"Oak Flat and Apache Leap are Sacred and Holy places (for the Apaches), so too is the nearby area known as Devils Canyon.

"On behalf of the Apache Tribe and other Indian NationsÅ we urge you not to support H.R. 3301 (Resolution Copper Land Exchange) in any form and take all actions within your power to protect these Holy, Sacred and Consecrated lands from harm."
