AISD provides expert assistance to the Hopi Tribe with presenting its claims for water rights in the litigation entitled In Re the General Adjudication of All Rights to Use Water in the Little Colorado River System and Source. To support the claim, AISD conducted two studies, Hopi Livestock Value Chain Study and Potential Future On-Reservation Water Demand and Hopi Livestock Value Chain Study, Strategy & Implementation Plan for Development of Hopi Cattle and Beef Value Chain.  AISD is called in rebuttal to the anticipated testimony of objectors and serves as expert witness.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
