Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
Letter to KBC from Jim and Pat Ottoman regarding Senator Whitsett's article on tribal land return,
Senator Doug Whitsett statements on Klamath Basin Alliance petitions, Klamath Basin Alliance, posted 1/27/07
Just read Doug's article and he is right on. The list of tribal members voting to remain or to sell shows the name of Alan Lee Forman, juvenile, voting to sell. Is this the same Alan Foreman who now as tribal Chairman wants the land returned? Will he/they return the money gotten from the sale? This list is in the archives and probably can be found in the Klamath Library.
A metal plaque at the Van Landrum Wayside flies four flags depicting the four nations once fighting over the west, including our Oregon country. These four countries were the United States of America, Great Britain, Russia and Mexico. What parts of these lands will they now want if we start dividing it up?
I always thought that by voting to dissolve the reservation , these voters expressed a wish to be full members of the USA.
