This rally was held in solidarity with Tribal members who traveled to Omaha to hold a healing ceremony for the ailing river and attend the shareholders meeting of billionaire Warren Buffett's Berkshire-Hathaway, the parent company of PacifiCorp. This was the third year Tribal members and other river residents made the journey to Portland "We are determined like the salmon in our efforts to remove the Klamath Dams. The lack of salmon including the dams is negatively affecting all areas of our life" said one river resident.
