Hoopa tribe protests Westlands water cuts in Fresno – “This is how people make a living, off of commercial fishing and also they eat it,”

A Native American tribe from Northern California came to Fresno Wednesday.  They want a federal judge to allow an increase in the flow of the Trinity River to protect one of the largest salmon runs in history. The protestors outside the Federal Courthouse in Fresno on Wednesday were members of the Hoopa tribe.  They came nearly 500 miles from their reservation near Eureka to make their voices heard.
