Webster Arthur describes how there were never any borders for Indigenous Peoples. Raquel decribes the corruption which threatens Paiute water rights to Pyramid Lake in Nevada. She tells how Sen. Harry Reid was a frequent visitor to sweatlodges before legislation surfaced which would steal Paiute water rights. She also describes the corruption by tribal leaders involved.
