Klamath Water: Tribes approve Agreement in
The ranching community has until April 18 (Good Friday) to decide whether or not to sign the agreement. Even if this settlement is passed by the ranchers as well, the question remains how many times this water will have to be repurchased from the tribes. Regardless of assurances in the document this is a once-and-for-all agreement, many still remember that when the tribes voted to free themselves from the tyrannical control of the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 1954 and become independent citizens, they were far more unified in their "forever" decision, and yet even after repeated payments, future generations eventually overturned that promise.
