Moapa Nevada's Ancient Palm trees
Ancient Palms in Nevada USA are threatened because scientists failed to take Local Indian memories into account when attempting to ascertain the origins of the Palms. Instead, they investigated only a single anecdotal account from a single early White settler to the region and prematurely claimed that the palms were non-native and should be destroyed. Yet Local Moapa Indians have possessed stories and artefacts for many generations indicating that the palms are ancient Native plants.
Perhaps you would visit the website and sign a Petition to help save these ancient American Native Palms from government destruction!
