FAEx Radio: Episode 1: Ka’ila Farrell-Smith

Klamath tribal members and activists, Taylor Tupper and Ka’ila Farrell-Smith, at the compressor station in Malin, OR. Within five minutes of being at the site, they had headaches and nosebleeds. Malin is the beginning of the Pacific Connector Pipeline, where it would meet up with the Ruby Pipeline, which passes through Nevada Paiute country. Photo credit: Alex Budd from Rising Tide.

Ka’ila Farrell Smith is an artist and activist from the Klamath Tribe in southern Oregon. We recently spoke about the proposed pipeline between Malin and Coos Bay, OR. The pipeline would run through 485 waterways and her tribe‚Äôs ancestral sacred lands.
