This may come as a shock, but the Indians have their own agenda, as well 
as having superior water rights in the Klamath Basin.  Their agenda is 
only concerned with fish when it suits their purposes.  The Klamath 
tribes have filed water claims for more water than exists in the Klamath 
Basin as a bargaining piece in their effort to regain their reservation 
lands.  They will align with any party that furthers their cause, and 
will abandon any party that hinders their cause.
