Sandra Woodard



Sandra and her husband set up camp leaving his Indian motorcycle and gear below Victoria Lake the evening before the Flood. Four of their friends stayed at the campsite however and were forced to climb to the top of a hill, clinging to trees in order to save themselves. Sandra's husband found his motorcycle two weeks later wrapped around a tree five miles downriver from their campsite. Sandra also speaks about the Community Powwow recognizing the Flood of 1972.
