We need your help this week to put pressure on Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, asking her to at the very least delay digging at Thacker Pass so consultation can be done properly. Native people of this region have been disregarded and disrespected by the Bureau of Land Management, and now digging threatens sacred sites and massacre sites very soon. This is urgent!
Please reach out to Secretary Deb Haaland today!
@SecDebHaaland — Lithium Nevada Corp is poised to bulldoze a known massacre site and sacred site of the Paiute Shoshone people. We need your help!

Hello, my name is ________ .
(If you’re a tribal member, state: I’m a member of the _______Tribe).
The Bureau of Land Management is about to bulldoze and dig up sacred sites and known massacre sites in Thacker Pass, Nevada. I am calling to request that the Department of the Interior rescind the Thacker Pass Lithium Mine Project Record of Decision and Plan of Operations.
I also request that the Department of the Interior order the Bureau of Land Management to stop any disturbance of cultural sites in Thacker Pass so that meaningful, government-to-government consultation can happen with local tribes.
Finally, I request that Secretary Haaland personally meet with the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony and Burns Paiute Tribe to hear their concerns about the Thacker Pass Lithium Mine Project.
