Peaceful week of tribal fishing on Nisqually


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.
