Letter: The Klamath River and the Yurok people

 

I was deeply moved by Brook Thompson’s article about the ongoing tragedy of the Klamath and her people (“The familial bond between the Klamath River and the Yurok people,” September 2021). I only wish that there could be a solution imminent, but I fear that the alienation of Western (European) “culture” from the natural world is so deep that for most it is irreparable. Thank you, Brook, for showing the consequences of such separation.
