Riassunto: "Danger, ancient legends, and a legal fight for the sacred. This powerful book...is a balanced account of the legal struggle over an important historic site-Donald L. Fixico, author of American Indians in a Modern World
"Against all odds and historical precedents, Nevada's Washoe Tribe won the right to protect Cave Rock, a sacred cultural site, from sport climbers. This compelling tale of cultural and political persistence explains how they succeeded."-Sherry L. Smith, author of Reimagining Indians: Native Americans Through Anglo Eyes, 1880-1940
Cave Rock recounts a lengthy dispute between the Washoe Indians, a small Nevada tribe, and a number of athletes, supported by powerful corporations, who turned a Washoe sacred place on the shore of Lake Tahoe into a world-class rock-climbing site. The book follows the legal challenges and administrative decisions that finally led to an unprecedented 2007 court ruling prohibiting sport climbing on Cave Rock.
Matthew S. Makley is assistant professor of history at Metropolitan State College in Denver. He has written several articles on the history and culture of the Washoe people. This is his first book.
Michael J. Makley lives in the eastern Sierra Nevada. He is also the author of The Infamous King of the Comstock: William Sharon and the Gilded Age in the West and John Mackay: Silver King in the Gilded Age, both published by the University of Nevada Press.

Descrizione libro University of Nevada Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condizione: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. On August 27, 2007, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an earlier district court ruling that sport climbing on a Washoe Indian sacred site in western Nevada must cease. Cave Rock, a towering monolith jutting over the shore of Lake Tahoe, has been sacred to the Washoe people for over five thousand years. Long abused by road builders and vandals, it earned new fame in the late twentieth century as a world-class sport rock-climbing site. Over twenty years of bitter disputes and confrontation between the Washoe and the climbers ensued. The Washoe are a small community of fewer than 2,000 members; the climbers were backed by a national advocacy and lobbying group and over a hundred powerful corporations. Cave Rock follows the history of the fight between these two groups and examines the legal challenges and administrative actions that ultimately resulted in a climbing ban. After over two centuries of judicial decisions allowing federal control, economic development, or public interests to outweigh Indian claims to their sacred places, the Court s ruling was both unprecedented and highly significant. As the authors conclude, the long-term implications of the ruling for the protection of Native rights are of equal consequence. Codice articolo AAN9780874178272
