STOP ALL cutting of our Pine Nut Trees immediately"
This petition had 673 supporters
December 2012 the U.S. Forest Service issued a clear cutting of our Traditional Pine Nut trees in Sweet Water, Nv. They “mistakenly” clear cut 70 acres of Tubape, (Pine-nut Trees).
The reason the U.S. Forest Service issued the cutting is:
"Sage Grouse habitat improvement and Fuel reduction"
The U.S. forest service is continuing to cut in our traditional gathering lands of the Great Basin Tribes.
Sweet Water Mountains, Desert Creek, and Sand Canyon.
There was not proper Nation to Nation consultation with the Nevada GreatBasin Tribes. Our tribal sovereignty and inherit right to harvest our traditional foods empower us as Indigenous people to save and practice our way of life.
We are asking the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management to "Cease and Desist all cutting of our Pine Nut Trees immediately" and have the opportunity for the GreatBasin Tribes to be consulted with as Nation to Nation consulting.
Please help Protect our Tubape for future generations to come.
