Challenging Colonialism s01e03: Weapons of Mass Destruction (p.I)
by Martin Rizzo-Martinez & Daniel Stonebloom
Part I: Dams and Colonization
In part one of a four part episode, we examine the negative environmental and cultural impact of dams, and the Indigenous-led movement to remove them. These dams, deemed Weapons of Mass Destruction by Chief Caleen Sisk, have devastated Salmon populations and the communities whose histories have been in relationship with Salmon since time immemorial.
Part I explores the Indigenous-led movement to restore Salmon in California rivers through dam removal.

Challenging Colonialism is produced by Martin Rizzo-Martinez, Historian, & Daniel Stonebloom, Public School Administrator; and is produced with support from the California State Parks Foundation. It is not our intention to further colonize the narrative, or to misrepresent stories that are not our own. It is our intention to create an educational resource where everyone can hear the perspectives of Indigenous peoples in their own words.
