Blessing Hands Rock

Being Winnemem is like an uphill road. Here's a youtube video of the area where the puberty ceremony will be held this summer for Marisa. These are the important parts of the land. Lyla and Caleen took a walk there to see what would be covered and by how much if the BOR were allowed to raise the Dam higher which is their plan with the support of Westlands (largest water corporation in the world) and with the nod by federal agencies because of the money involved. It's all about money. These are the people who do not want the fish to come back and for the Winnemem to remain. Goliath.
