Peaceful week of tribal fishing on Nisqually

Author:

Another four day week of tribal net fishing on the Nisqually River ended peacefully on Wednesday. The Nisqually is famous for its tense history of clashes between tribal and non-tribal fishermen over the years. It is one of the few places that the two entities share salmon runs in such a confined and concentrated area. Just last year the uneasy undercurrent of resentment overflowed. Tribal police received reports of hateful shouting matches, graffiti and rock throwing.
