Document - Katimiin and Ameekyaaraam Sacred Lands Act Senate Testimony

Abstract

On behalf of the whitewater paddling community, American Whitewater writes to express our appreciation for holding a hearing on the Katimiîn and Ameekyáaraam Sacred Lands Act (S. 4439). This legislation would take certain Federal land located in Siskiyou County, California, and Humboldt County, California, into trust for the benefit of the Karuk Tribe. The Katimiîn and Ameekyáaraam land is located in the aboriginal territory of the Karuk Tribe and represents the center of the Karuk universe at the confluence of the Salmon River with the Klamath River. Restoring these unceded lands to the stewardship of the Karuk Tribe is a long overdue moral imperative.

Description

Testimony in support of Karuk Tribe's effort to manage lands along the Salmon and Klamath Rivers of deep cultural significance.
