Nearly six months later, the images of Alabama running back Najee Harris in college football’s national-championship game remain vivid: bursting into the open, bouncing off tacklers, making a loud splash on the sport’s biggest stage.

Her father, Bill Bowers, who was gillnetting farther downriver, looked up to see a raft … [Read more...] about How a Yurok lawyer from Oregon led her tribe’s fight over Klamath Basin’s future, and past
