“Oh the water is everything to the culture here.  And the degradation of the water has resulted in a dramatic change in the lifestyle of the people because it has destroyed the harvest and the people relied upon their harvest for their livelihood.  And of course pollution is the primary culprit there. It has everything to do with overpopulation and industrialization.  The environment has steadily degraded because people have not taken into consideration the balance that is necessary to life. And native people have been attempting to bring about that awareness for centuries to educate newcomers that had a different approach to living on the land and water.”
