“The Aqueduct Between Us” is a social justice water symposium that aims to serve 2 communities by exposing the people of Los Angeles, residents and students alike, to the narrative Owens Valley tribal communities on issues surrounding water and tribal sovereignty.
An all-tribal panel (5 panelists) from the Owens Valley (Bishop, Big Pine, Lone Pine tribes) will present their history, before and after the construction of the aqueduct by the LADWP, and current state of injustices that occur.
This symposium aims to build a robust coalition through historicizing the connection between these tribal communities and Angelenos; to then better pressure the LADWP to recognize tribal sovereignty.
