PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION!
This will tell legislators in your state that you oppose raising Shasta Dam.
California congressional representatives (Democrats and Republicans) are lining up to ram through federal legislation to raise Shasta Dam and guarantee low cost water to Central Valley water brokers for big profits.
The Winnemem Wintu of the McCloud River have paid once already, losing our lands, our river and our salmon. We received no compensation when the dam flooded us out, and then were told we’re not Indians any more.
A higher dam will drown more of our ceremonial sites, including the grounds of our Balas Chonas (Coming of Age ceremony), which make us who we are.
NO SHASTA DAM RAISE!
