Chapter 1. A Protest at Shasta Dam

“We want the history and present realities of the Winnemem Wintu tribe from our point of view to be included in a permanent exhibit in the visitor center on Shasta Dam to accurately represent the suffering we have endured for the State of California’s water supply. It is only right that our sacrifice and contribution to California be acknowledged.”
