Tribe files suit over hunting rights

Author:

The Colville Confederated Tribes has filed suit in federal court to defend tribal hunting rights in its North Half territory. “This case defends our members’ right to hunt on the North Half, free of illegal state regulation,” Colville Business Council Chairman Michael Finley said. “Tribal members hunting there should not be prosecuted under Washington’s firearms law for engaging in conduct that is both safe and allowed by tribal law.”
