Yakamas for a Cleaner Columbia
Yakama Nation Fisheries Resource Management - Hybrid - host119.yakama.com
As young children, Yakamas learn about the relationship between humans, plants, animals, fish and the land. In this way, Yakamas grow up aware of their responsibility to protect the resources for those not yet born. The Yakama Nation is concerned about the toxic pollution in the Columbia River, the largest river in the Pacific Northwest. We stand to gain significantly by restoring America's fourth largest watershed to its cultural and historical importance. A cleaner Columbia Basin will restore the environment and improve the wellbeing of Northwest people.

I have strong interest in preserving this environment, especially along Nichii-wana! My family grew up along the river, and it is very fascinating to see others reach out like this! kwathlanuu...

For the future
Power to the people to revive the land stripped of its virtues..in the name of future generations!
hopeful managers see restoration at the ecosystem approach versus a single species...some of our native rivers and streams are no longer that, they are irrigation corridors (pipes) for farmers...
