PASADENA - Protesting the use of treated sewage water to make snow in an area they hold sacred, Native American activists marched through the city with environmental leaders to a hearing at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday.

In colorful garb and playing traditional music, the Native Americans walked from All Saints Episcopal Church to the courthouse for a hearing on snow-making at a ski resort in the San Francisco Peaks north of Flagstaff.
