Guardians of the River

Klamath Dam Removal

In November, 2020, Governors from Oregon and California agreed to proceed with plans to remove four dams on the Klamath River, by taking ownership of the removal process from the PacifiCorp utility, which would become the largest dam removal operation in America.

From American Rivers: “In this film by American Rivers and Swiftwater Films, Indigenous leaders share why removing four dams to restore a healthy Klamath River is critical for clean water, food sovereignty and justice.

“Guardians of the River” features Frankie Joe Myers, Vice Chair of the Yurok Tribe, Sammy Gensaw, director of Ancestral Guard, Barry McCovey, fisheries biologist with the Yurok Tribe, and members of the Ancestral Guard and Klamath Justice Coalition.”
