    precisely because a bunch of people would be using the river and thus they can make their point to more people. I think it was the right thing for them to do to get attention, especially since they are apparently neither a very big nor very influential tribe. I can't imagine anyone pulling something like this crap of disrupting ceremonies more than once on the Navajo or Iroquis or Anishinabe or Cherokee.
