Morning Star Gali – Save California Salmon
“Fish versus Farmers” is often the headline when the California Water wars are in the papers, but what about the Tribes that have depended on the fisheries of the Bay Delta and Sacramento River system for time immemorial? Many of these Tribes now live above the many dams on the Bay Delta watersheds and are fighting to restore their salmon. This panel will discuss the movement to Bring the Salmon home to the Winnemem Wintu and Pit River Tribes above the Shasta Dam, along with threats to the fisheries in California’s most over appropriated watershed from the Shasta Dam Raise Trump Water Plan, Delta Tunnel and Sites Reservoir.
