Apache Activists Open For Neil Young

Nizhoni Pike and her friends had the best seats in the house for the Neil Young concert in Jersey last week – better than front row. In fact, they’ve had an incredible vantage point at several of the shows on Young’s Rebel Content Tour this summer. “It’s been pretty awesome to be up on stage and look out and see so many people supporting us, yelling for us,” Pike says. “And we know some of his songs. We’ve been singing along!” Pike is part of a cross-country caravan called the Apache Stronghold, made up of dozens of activists and supporters of the Arizona San Carlos Apache tribe who are calling out a mining industry land grab rammed through Congress last December – and who have made an unconventional opener for Young.
