Extra, Extra read all about it!!  Water running low on some American Indian reservations.  News stories say some tribes are low on water due to lower water levels on Lake Mead and the Colorado Rivers.  Other tribes lack water because of dry summers and spent reservoirs.

 Read about the Makah Indian Nation at Neah Bay, Washington.  Tribe leader Ben Johnson says, “We’re in bad shape out here.  Neah Bay is dry like a desert. We can’t use water for anything other than cooking and drinking.”
 
 Urgent!! Get your internet news today.  The situation is so dire that the Makah tribe is borrowing desalinated water from a Coast Guard Station for its 2,300 residents, 1,800 of whom are tribal members.  Read Matt Gouras’ Associated Press article calling it a crisis that “in many states, water claims in entire watersheds remain in limbo without the funding to sort out who owns what . . .”

 Get the latest news!!!! Tribe members on the very isolated Duck Valley Indian Reservation in Owyhee, Nevada, near the Idaho border, have been in dire need water since wild fires have been raging in the West.

 In another story about Arizona, the 15,000 members of the White Mountain Apache tribe have also been running out of water, but new agreements between the tribe, the state and the U.S. Government may solve that problem with guarantees of water from the Salt and Little Colorado Rivers.   But settlements have not been reached with the Navajo Nation and Hopi Tribe that is also dependent on water from the Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers.

 Read about new research in today’s stories showing that 25 million people in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming, as well as 34 Indian tribes and two Mexican states depend on the Colorado River for water.  And that River too is drying out because of over-population in those western areas of the United States.  In fact, Cocopa Indians living on the U.S. and Mexico border have lived on the Colorado River for 2,000 years, but now they have to truck in their water.

 Hurry, Hurry, Hurry.  Get the Latest News from the Internet: not just Native Americans, but all Americans, are running low on water!! Read Amos 4: 7 – 8 in wholesale Christian Bibles to see how God uses low water supplies to call on people to return to Him:  “And also I have withholden the rain from you, when [there were] yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.  So two [or] three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.”  Surely, the Good News is that it is not too late for readers, and all who need God’s natural, as well as spiritual, water to repent!!
