by MTV News article title ‘The skagits’ are a wild place!
The ‘Skagits of Washington’ article by The Skagits, The Story of the Skags, a documentary about the Skaggit River, was released in October 2018.
Written by James R. Hogg, author of the book The Skaggits of the Sky and a co-author of the film, The Skags of the Sea, the documentary explores the history of the river in Washington, D.C. It follows a small group of skagt-wannabes as they journey through the woods, up the Skagin River, and into the heart of the city.
While the film is not intended to be a definitive history of skags, it offers a glimpse of a time when the Skagger Tribe inhabited the Skaggeders, a small, rocky outcrop in the northern part of the state.
“We want to show that this is not a wild, rural, rugged region,” says Rhea L. Kornblum, one of the filmmakers and the executive producer of the documentary.
“These are people that live in the city, live on the west side of town, and then we also see this other side of Skagitt, in the hills, in that valley.”
A Skagita named Skag, from the Skagon, is seen in this photo taken by photographer and photographer-in-residence Michael J. Kopp in the Kopp River Valley in the District, October 26, 2018.
Skag’s reputation as a wild land The Skagger River, as it is known, is home to numerous wild animals, including bears, deer, and moose.
A study conducted in 2015 by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) concluded that the Skagos River is one of Washington’s “wildest” rivers, and that “the Skagas are home to over a million fish species.”
The Skagin is home of a number of migratory bird species, including the blackbird, heron, and the American red-headed goshawk.
In fact, there are more than 10,000 species of bird in the area, according to the National Audubon Society, which oversees the U,S.
Fish and Wildlife Service.
The Skago is also home to a variety of migrations of fish including salmon, goldfish, and whitefish, as well as the endangered and threatened salmon.
The fish have also become endangered because of pollution from the nearby chemical plant known as DuPont.
As the Skago River is known to be rich in nutrients, it can be a challenging habitat for native wildlife.
“In the Skaga Valley, you have some of the most pristine wildlife habitat in the world,” Kopp says.
“But when you go up to the Skagus, you see all of the pollution.”
While it is difficult to describe the Skaguins’ experience of life on the river, Kopp has heard from some of them how their lives are changed by the polluted water.
“It is very disheartening,” he says.
One Skagiti told him that he was forced to kill a bear because of the polluted river water.
The water in the river can be extremely toxic.
“The river is full of pesticides,” he said.
“You have to be careful because the poison can take you out of your body.”
The river was also polluted when it first was created in the 1800s.
“Before the Skagra was created, it was mostly just a river of water,” Kornbum says.
It took an unknown chemical to make it into a river that could be used for irrigation.
“And then you got the addition of chemicals like the DuPont, and you just kind of changed it around.”
The DuPont chemical has been used in the water supply in many places in the United States.
But Kopp and his team found that a combination of chemicals, including DuPont and an unknown mineral, combined with the river’s natural water chemistry, resulted in an increase in the number of fish species, such as the silverback, which is the most threatened species in the wild.
Kaggs experience is similar to that of many other skagti who live in communities.
Kogas are often told that they should go out into the SkAGITS, the Skaganis, the river and the mountains and see the Skages, a group of Native Americans who are members of the Blackfeet Nation, the only reservation in the region.
“A lot of skaggits are told, ‘Don’t go out there, because it’s dangerous,'” Kornbi says.
