This chapter presents the story of the construction of the Zuni Dam. It shows that the federal government’s decision to build the dam and adjacent town had a profound cultural and political impact on the Zuni people’s lifestyle and worldview. The project was plagued by the dam failure, huge construction cost overruns, and an uncontrollable silt problem.
