PA C I F I C R I V E R S
I worked on the Nez Perce Water Rights Agreement, the relicensing of the Hells Canyon Complex, seasonal operations of Dworshak Dam to assist salmon migration, and many other large and small projects. I witnessed the power of the Nimiipuu’s connection to their land and water, their passion for their rights, their pride in their history, and the generosity of their spirit. I observed leadership based on respect, humility, and confidence borne from generations of leaders that came before, always with an eye to the generations who will follow and live with the decisions made today. Today, this moment is a test of our collective will to change the status quo and create the conditions necessary for survival, not just for fish and wildlife, but for the Nimiipuu. This is why Pacific Rivers works in the Snake River Basin.
For the Rivers,
