Los Angeles could not be what it is today without imported water. In 1913 the LA Aqueduct was completed, and water was diverted south from the Owens Valley via more than 200 miles of canals and pipelines. Over one hundred years later, California Indians and other residents from the Owens Valley speak about how the impacts of that diversion continue to reverberate throughout the region. Their voices deserve to finally be heard.
