Zuni Pueblo of New Mexico continues its fight against a proposed coal mine development near a sacred lake.

Tribal officials are testifying today in Washington, D.C., about their opposition. The Senate Indian Affairs Committee holds a hearing on sacred sites at 10 a.m. A live audio feed will be available at
