Once counting 70イ ン デ ィ ア ンThe tribes are indigenous, and there are still more than 200 tribes, both official and non-official.There are many fishermen who engage in salmon fishing.In the Puget Sound, by neighboring tribesCanoeThere is a lot of competition.
In the state, there are a large number of fishermen in the sea river, but white people can enjoy mountain stream fishing as a sport, but if Indians fish in the river, they will be arrested for poaching, which is linked to racial discrimination in the 1950s. It was still strong even after becoming.Furthermore, since the 1950s, bills to deprive Indian tribes of the fishing and hunting rights in the United States have been passed one after another by the United States Parliament, which has become a life-and-death issue for Indian tribes in the state. In 1954, the leader of the "Puyalup"Bob SatyacamThe protests over Indian fishing rights initiated by the United States became a central theme in the Indian rights restoration movement in the 1960s.
In March 1964, nearly 3 Indians from all over the United States gathered all over Washington to protest the Indians' deprivation of fishing and hunting rights. The "Fish in Protest" was carried out. This "Fish Inn", the first large-scale protest by Indians in the 5000th century, was launched in 20.National Indian Youth CouncilWas led by.In this movement, white actorsMarlon BrandAlso participates and provides assistance.This "fish-in" protest was thoroughly cracked down by whites, followed by arrests and Indian movements who led the movement.Hank AdamsWas seriously injured in the shooting of the police.
The "Nisquarie", the origin of the name of the Nisquarie River, was forcibly relocated to the Puget Bay area near the mouth of the river by the US Federal Government under the 1854 "Medicine Creek Treaty", but they were put on hold. Two-thirds of the land was occupied by the construction of the US Army's "Lewis Base" in 2, and fishing rights were deprived. In the 3s, they started a campaign to restore their fishing rights on the river, guaranteed by the Medicin Creek Treaty, with the "Puyalup".Endured harassment and numerous arrests from whites, sued the state government, and granted all Indian tribes in Washington state 1917% of their traditional territory in 1970.Bolt resolutionI won.
However, since 1885, power companies have built power generation dams in many rivers in the state, hindering salmon run-up, obscuring these treaties and resolutions, and many fishing tribes have said these. There is a movement to request improvement of dam facilities.There has been a great deal of controversy involving environmental groups over the renewal of electric power dam contracts. Settled by setting up a fish egg hatchery on the reserve, but the "Yakama" and "Chulalip" are against the "Rock Island Dam" on the Columbia River, and the "McCleat" is against the Puget Sound Power Company. , Is pending in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FARC).
On November 2009, 11, the Colville Tribal Secretariat was a land guaranteed by a treaty with the Commonwealth in 12, and was granted hunting and fishing rights even after being ceded to the Commonwealth in 1872. A lawsuit was filed in a federal court to confirm the hunting rights of the tribe in the "Half Area"."The application of Washington's'Firearms Control Act'is too strict for Indian tribes than in other states," said Michael Finley, chairman of the council.
The "Skralams" are traditional fishermen, but since the early 20th century, sawmills by white companies have been planted on the Kitzap Peninsula where they live, polluting the surrounding waters.The Sclaram tribe, which uses seafood as a traditional food, is affected by marine pollution, and in the 1990s, all tribal members who continued to eat traditional food developed cancer, which has become a major problem.
"Olympia Peninsula"MakahIs the only tribe in the United States whose whaling rights are approved by a treaty with the federal government, but has been unfairly banned for nearly 100 years.Although traditional gray whale fishing has resumed in this century, the state government and anti-whaling groups "Sea shepherd, Etc., continue to be disturbed, harassed, and threatened.
"Seattle City" is the Seattle Chief of ""Chief Seattle) Is named after.Chief Seattle's speech when the Squamish tribe was displaced to the reservation by the US federal government in the 19th century is very famous.
