CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Native Americans from across the state are using song and dance to show their opposition to bear hunts in Nevada.
About 50 supporters of the anti-bear hunt bill SB 82 converged outside the Nevada Legislature building Monday to protect the "bear nation."
Raquel Arthur represents the Pyramid Lake Paiute tribe. She says Native Americans view the bear as a sacred animal, and strongly disapprove of the state allowing hunters to kill their "relative."
As Tribal Day at the legislative session continues, supporters say they'll stay at the capital doing whatever they can to give the bears a voice.
