|The Lummi Indians and the Canadian/American Pacific Salmon Treaty|
American Indian Quarterly, Vol. 12, No. 4, Autumn, 1988, pp. 299-311.
The Canadian/American Pacific Salmon Treaty was signed in 1985 to split the Pacific salmon stocks between Canadian and American fisheries. However, the Lummi Tribe were guaranteed fifty percent of Pacific salmon stocks in Washington State from a 1974 Federal Court decision. This paper looks at the impact of the Pacific Salmon Treaty on the Lummi and their reaction to the agreement.
