JAYA MARA ARU (THE LANGUAGE OF ANCIENT YEARS)
Aymara is an agglutinating language of roots and sufixes. This agglutination is given by the action of the sufixes over the roots according to rules which are the fundamental of the Aymara grammar.

BLACK MESA WEAVERS FOR LIFE AND LAND
The Dine' (Navajo) people of Black Mesa in Arizona have been struggling for 25 years to save their homes and the land. During this time, 12,000 people have been forcibly removed from their homes; 3,000 remain and still resist, seeking only justice and to live in peace. I am working with the Black Mesa Weavers for Life and Land (a tax-exempt charitable entity) to help them in their struggle against the congressional laws (1974 and 1996) that created their plight. They are fighting the power of the Peabody Coal Company, which is stripmining and destroying the land, bulldozing sacred sites, and draining the irreplaceable drinking water aquifer, threatening the water supply of the entire area.
