The Injun people are at one with nature. But they need shekels for firewater like the rest of us.
It almost sounds like a joke — a mall in the Grand Canyon? But a company called Developers Confluence Partners has proposed building a $1 billion entertainment complex on the east rim of the Grand Canyon that has created an uproar.
Called the Grand Canyon Escalade, the developers refer to the project as a “tourism destination development” that will include shopping, an IMAX theater, multiple hotels, and an RV park. It’s all centered around a Gondola Tramway, designed to take travelers “from the rim of the Grand Canyon to an elevated Riverwalk on the Canyon floor.”
An action group called Sum Of Us is having none of it and has started an online petition to fight the development, which has reached 90,000 supporters — 10,000 people away from its 100,000 goal. According to the petition, the tram is being built in a “sacred place for the Navajo.“
But members of the local Navajo Nation support the development, claiming that it will create jobs — and even plan to put $65 million toward infrastructure surrounding the project, NBC News reported.
Here is the official page outlining the Injun plot to turn the Grand Canyon into a sacred mall, where the Pale Man is invited to smoke an electronic peace pipe before watching the latest offering of Pixar in crisp 3D with surround sound which makes you believe you are actually inside a story of toys.
The Kali Yuga is consumerism.
