Native America Calling: Monday, October 28, 2019 – Mounting Pressure to Remove Dams

The Dalles Dam on the Columbia River

OCTOBER 28, 2019 BY ART HUGHES LEAVE A COMMENT


Tribal leaders from the Yakama and Lummi nations called for the removal of several dams along the Columbia River in Washington State. The tribes are concerned about dwindling salmon populations and the concurrent decline of orcas. Other tribes, like the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla in Oregon and the Yurok and Pit River Tribe in California, have also fought to remove dams. We’ll check in on the efforts to get rid of dams and hear about how they affect tribes and tribal land.


Guests:

Morning Star Gali (Ajumawi Band of Pit River) – tribal water organizer for Save California Salmon

Regina Chichizola – co-director of Save California Salmon

Robert Elofson (tribal member of the Lower Elwha Klallum Tribe) – harvest manager for the Lower Elwha Klallum Tribe
