Tribes battling Interior Department over wind farm in California





The Quechan Nation and the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians are among opponents of a wind farm in southern California.

The tribes say the Ocotillo Wind Energy Facility, about 80 miles east of San Diego, will threaten sacred sites and burial grounds. But so far, a federal judge has refused to stop construction.

The wind farm will sit on 10,000 acres on public land, The Epoch Times reported.
