On March 30, 2002, The Boston Globe reported that "as farmers cheered, federal officials let the water flow yesterday from a canal into fields for the first time since last summer, when irrigation was halted amid fears about endangered sucker fish... Members of two Indian tribes chanted and banged drums to show their concern that the Bush administration is favoring the needs of farmers over their own. The fish are considered sacred to tribes in the Klamath Basin."
