VIDEO: Forest Service turns closure against Winnemem Wintu July 2012

Day 3: Winnemem Wintu struggle to protect their Coming of Age Ceremony, July 2012.

(Video above) Winnemem Wintu, protecting their Coming of Age Ceremony, July 3, 2012: "Rather than spend energy interacting with boaters wanting to come up past our ceremony, the Forest Service law enforcement personnel chose to use the details of the closure order against our right to hold ceremony according to our needs."
