Santa Cruz resident Larry Sanders and his brother, James Dunlap, of Sacramento launched YurokVoices.com in mid-January in an effort to provide off-reservation tribal members with information--particularly updates the brothers say aren't finding their way from the tribal headquarters in Klamath to members living elsewhere.
The most recent example of that information void, Dunlap said, was the result of the vote on how the settlement monies would be dispersed. While the result of the vote could have been placed on the tribe's Web site, Dunlap said it hasn't been updated for more than a year.
In fact, the impetus for the site--launched Jan. 11--was a discussion on the Times-Standard Web site comment section related to the story on the settlement vote.
