P’squosa People & Their Fishing Rights

January 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Hosted by Wenatchee River Institute
Join Tribal Historian, Richard Hart, for your lunch break!
A leader of the Psquosa signed the 1855 Walla Walla Treaty, which guaranteed them a 6 by 6 mile reservation where Icicle Creek meets the Wenatchee River. The United States never surveyed the reservation and refused for over a century to recognize the tribe’s fishing rights. In a federal trial in May of 2008 the Psquosa argued they had fishing rights and eventually the court (and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals) ruled in favor of the tribe, so under the law, the matter is now settled. After more than 150 years the Wenatchis finally have their fishing rights.
