Ethel Whitehair ran out of water again over the weekend, she emptied every bucket and pot, drained the plastic barrels lined up outside her front door. The community well at the chapter house was closed until Monday. Water from another well at a nearby windmill could supply the sheep, but it was untreated and made Whitehair's skin itch. And so Whitehair waited as she had so often during her 87 years on the Navajo Reservation, waited for someone to bring her water. “She stays by herself for long stretches of time and then we have to come and haul the water” said Amy Yazzie, Whitehair's daughter.
