Paddle Tribal Waters is a positive way to celebrate the removal of the Klamath dams and support the tribal nations by ensuring their youth have a say in the dam removal. This short film encourages education about the dams while also showing how to enjoy the river’s beauty. —Mateo Bubolo, age 16

Rios to Rivers

Through cultural exchanges, we connect young people from rural and indigenous communities which are threatened or recovering from reservoir and dam development. These historically underrepresented communities have been left out of traditional top-down decisions for river development that ultimately damage the health of their rivers and communities. Our students do not have the means to travel, nor have they been exposed to opportunities to participate in river recreation, meet people from other cultures, interact directly with scientists, politicians, and community leaders. Students gain a deeper sense of purpose, which extends far beyond individual growth, as they discover that they have the power to be a voice for their communities and their rivers. As we continue to create opportunities, where they can take positive action on issues, students are able to improve their communities for decades.
