Diné CARE, Citizens Against Ruining our Environment, is an all-Navajo environmental organization, based within the Navajo homeland. We strive to educate and advocate for our traditional teachings as we protect and provide a voice for all life in the Four Sacred Mountains. We promote alternative uses of natural resources that are consistent with the Diné philosophy of Beauty Way. Our main goal is to empower local and traditional people to organize, speak out and determine their own destinies.Diné CARE - an indigenous environmental organization to protect and preserver the diné way of life.
We seek to empower, provide a voice for, and protect the interests of community-based and traditional people. We started as a small, community based organization in 1988 to prevent the location of a toxic waste incinerator and dump in the Navajo community of Dilkon, Arizona. After our successful defense there, we received considerable regional attention, and soon we were called upon by other Navajo groups to assist in similar situations. We have thus grown into a multi-issue, Reservation-wide organization.
Our growth has permitted us the chance to share among ourselves many experiences and struggles, and to see a distressing pattern in the way that the system of funding and supporting environmental activism fails to work in Native lands. Read more here:
