TRIBAL WATER JUSTICE
Water is vital to us all. Tribal rights to hunt, gather, and fish in their homelands were secured through a series of treaties between Tribes and the Federal Government. Today, the upper Klamath Lake is still home to culturally and spiritually important fish to the Klamath Tribes. The declining health and water levels of the Upper Klamath have put many of these fish on the endangered species list.
Join us on Wednesday, December 16th at 12:00 pm PST for the Tribal Water Justice Webinar featuring Chairman Don Gentry from the Klamath Tribes. Chairman Gentry will discuss current legal steps to protect and replenish watersheds cherished by the Tribe.
Speaker: Chairman Don Gentry, Klamath Tribes.
Guest Respondent: Direlle Calica, Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, Changing Currents, and Kanim Associates, LLC
Moderated by: Haley Case-Scott, Beyond Toxics and the NAACP Eugene/Springfield
