The genocide of Native Americans was one of the largest mass killings in
human history. Very few tribes survived and were able to maintain their
languages and traditions, and for many, the threat to their culture
continues even to this day. 

On this edition, Making Contact intern producers Rachel Gelfand and Michael
Preston bring us the story of the Winnemem Wintu, a small Indian tribe in
Northern California , and tell the story of their struggle to prevent the
flooding of the sacred land they have called home for centuries.


Caleen Sisk-Franco, Winnemem Wintu spiritual leader and chief; Mark Franco,
Winnemem Wintu tribal headman and spokesperson; Jill Ward, Heleen Sisk and
Sarah Haase, Winnemem Wintu tribal members; Debbie Davis, Environmental
Justice Coalition water analyst; Jonas Minton, Planning and Conservation
League water policy advisor for Sacramento; Sarah Woolf, Westlands Water
District spokesperson. 

As part of our commitment to train and air the work of young producers, this
program was produced by  <http://www.datacenter.org> Data Center interns
Rachel Gelfand and Michael Preston. The Data Center received financial
support from the Jesse Smith Noyes Foundation for this radio work.
