In the final part of a four-part episode, we continue to examine the negative environmental and cultural impact of dams, and the Indigenous-led movement to remove them.

Part IV ends this extended episode with a story of hope, sharing a ceremony for the return of salmon to Amah Mutsun waters after the removal of a small dam in Northern Santa Cruz County. Speakers: Carolyn Rodriguez (Amah Mutsun), Steven Pratt (Amah Mutsun), Elijah Catalan, Mike Grone, & Josh Thunder Little (Lakota).
