Duck Valley Indian Rez without water, running low on food after fire destroys village

7600 Views

There is a dire emergency at the Duck Valley Indian Reservation
in Owyhee, Nevada. It’s a very isolated reservation on the
Nevada/Idaho border. One of the many fires that have been
burning out of control in the west devastated this little
village and people have been suffering without water and electricity
for 8 day now with no relief in sight.

Food is going bad because
there is no electricity since all the power poles are burned
to a crisp. The elderly and the children are taking a direct
hit as water supplies dwindle and food is in short supply.
Since there is no power, the heat is taking its toll in this desert area where daytime temperatures exceed 100.

There
is human suffering since there has been no aid. If ever there
was a time for The People to pull together it’s now. So give these people a chance to survive in this blistering
heat. Give them a call and see what you can do.

These are our
brothers and sister who are literally baking in the hot Nevada
sun. If nothing is done, like soon, there will be fatalities
as the elderly will soon expire from the heat and the lack of
water.

This is a human tragedy in the making and they need help now.
Do you think the feds will help them? Well it’s been 8 days
now, so you can do the math. Lives will soon be lost if help does not
get there soon. Please, Please contact them, do your bit for
our relations in Shoshone-Paiute country.
