-A A +A

Gov. Toya > Says pueblo will fight as long as it takes to succeed

By The Staff

Jemez Pueblo Governor Vincent Toya announced Friday the Pueblo has appealed New Mexico federal district court judge Robert C. Brack’s Sept. 24 decision, dismissing the Pueblo’s title lawsuit.

The lawsuit seeks the return of the Valles Caldera. The case will be reviewed by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Toya said in a statement, “We continue our fight to secure our rights in this sacred land until we succeed. We will pursue all options in our struggle to protect this sacred land. Wavema, Redondo Peak, is just as precious to us as Blue Lake is to Taos Pueblo.

“It is also the source of the Rio Jemez that delivers precious water resources for sustaining our people and community. It is our most important sacred place and it is crucial to the survival of traditional Jemez culture. The people of Taos Pueblo fought for 64 years to recover Blue Lake. We are just as committed.”
