Submission Text
I oppose the Uinta Basin Railway, it is not a benefit to the Native American people who reside on the Uinta Valley Reservation. The railroad is trespassing on Shoshone allodial lands and is damaging our ancestral culture, as well as, the anthropological sites of the ancient Fremont Indians that are throughout the Uinta Basin. The Shoshone Indians are the descendants of the Fremont's and the owners of the reservation. The entire Uinta Basin is in Indian Country, the state is trespassing and violating the Federal Antiquities Act. The Uinta Basin Railroad must not be approved.Tressa Jordan
