Chief Caleen Sisk, Winnemem Wintu Tribe.

The growing demand for water in Southern California is putting the Winnemem Wintu culture and spirituality at risk.   The recently proposed raising of Shasta Dam by 18 feet to address the water crisis is a bad idea.  Raising the dam will harm fish, wildlife and the religious rights of the tribe when water-saving measures by farmers could save more water and cost much less.   Listen to the story from the Wintu point of view.
