Native American Tribe Suffers From Artillery Noise From US Military Base


October 29, 2018

DENVER (Sputnik) - The Nisqually Native American Tribe is suffering from the continuous noise of heavy artillery tested at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord not far from its tribal lands in the US state of Washington, Council Member Hanford McCloud told Sputnik.

"They use artillery shells and they use guns; they are constantly shelling. They are shooting and practicing with artillery that ranges from three miles to ten miles from their targets. And then they use big 50 caliber guns and everything else to practice. In our area, we are constantly under the sound of heavy artillery and machine guns being fired, all night long sometimes," Council Member Hanford McCloud said.
