  • California tribe fears losing land if dam is raised

    In this valley where four rivers meet, the Winnemen Wintu tribe fished and farmed for centuries, its villages always near the water’s edge.

    Much of that heritage was lost during California’s era of dam building. The tribe’s ancestral land in Northern California was submerged when the federal government built a 602-foot dam downstream of their ceremonial and prayer grounds in 1945.
