Tale Of Two Rivers: The "Klamazon" Delegation

Delegation members detail their trip.

Dams in, dams out (maybe): the Amazon River may be home to a huge new dam, at the very time efforts continue to remove four dams from the Klamath River.

Now young people from the Yurok and other local tribes will travel to the Amazon. 

They'll visit with indigenous people from that region and join them in opposing the building of the Belo Monte dam.  We visit with members of what has become known as "The Klamazon Delegation."
