Eureka, CA - Today Save California Salmon released its first episode of the Western Water Justice podcast, “Envisioning Justice on the Klamath River with Dr. Cutcha Risling-Baldy”. The first episode of the podcast was released today in honor of indigenous People’s Day, according to Save California Salmon.
“The Western Water Justice podcast aims to highlight issues of water injustice in the west, along with the voices of those that are the most impacted by the climate and water crises in the Western United States,” according to the group. “The podcast also aims to provide solutions for our crises and to envision a more just world. The first episodes will be focused on the Klamath River.”
“Nothing is possible until we can say it,” explained Dr. Cutcha Risling Baldy in the first podcast. “We need to remind ourselves that impossible things have happened within our lifetimes. There are so many impossible things that are already happening, land is being returned that native people were told only twenty or thirty years ago would never be returned, dams are being removed, a Native Woman, Deb Halaad, is in charge of the Department of Interior.”
