MOSIER, Ore. (AP)  Leaders of several Pacific Northwest tribes gathered Thursday near the site of last weeks fiery oil train wreck in Oregon to condemn the shipping of fossil fuels through the Columbia River Gorge, a scenic homeland and sacred fishing ground for the Yakama Nation and others over the millennia.

.

We do not want fossil fuels at all coming through the Columbia River Gorge at all, said Yakama Nation Chairman JoDe Goudy. We truly see what is at hand.  We are sacrificing and putting at risk the long-term benefit and well-being of future generations, our children, our grandchildren, those yet to come.

.

A 96-car train carrying volatile crude oil from the Northern Plains Bakken region to Tacoma, Washington, derailed June 3 along the Columbia River, which forms most of the boundary between Washington and Oregon. No one was hurt, but four cars caught fire, prompting the evacuation of a nearby school, forcing the closure of an interstate, and enraging local officials and residents. Some of the oil made it to the river, where it was captured by absorbent booms, officials said.

.

The Yakama and other tribes have opposed the movement of oil and other fossil fuels through the Columbia Gorge, a canyon carved out of the regions volcanic rock by the river and by violent Ice Age floods. Oil trains pose grave threats to public safety, the environment and their treaty-reserved fishing rights, the tribes say.

The tribal leaders said they were especially sad to be gathering to discuss the derailment on the 161st anniversary of the U.S. governments treaty with the Yakamas, an event that was to be marked with a weekend of celebrations including a parade and powwow. The pollution caused by oil spills threatens the fishing rights reserved in the treaty, the tribe said.
