Medicine Lake Highlands is a tribal landscape located northeast of Mount Shasta in the mountains of northern California.   This sacred area is threatened by geothermal development sought by corporations which are unconcerned with the ecological and human rights impacts their proposed developments entail. It is important for all of us to stand together as a broad alliance to Protect Medicine Lake.  

The Pit River, Modoc, Shasta, Karuk and Wintu tribes revere the area for its natural healing energy and for its connections to their tribes' histories. For example, the Pit River Tribe believes that the Creator and his son bathed in Medicine Lake after they created the earth, and the Creator imparted his spirit to the waters. Because of the lake's sacredness, tribes from the coast of California to the Rocky Mountains use the surrounding area as a training ground for medicine men.
