Add comment on:Forest Service Ignores Tribe's Request for Peaceful Sacred Ceremony
"I am saddened that Moore does not have the courage to do what's right," said Caleen Sisk, Chief and Spiritual Leader of the Winnemem Wintu Tribe. "We lost all our land when they built Shasta Dam, and now all we want is four days of peace and dignity for our ceremony, which is vital to the social fabric of our tribe. A peaceful ceremony is our right, and we are not accepting anything short of that."
