    Virginia tribes question interpretation of treaty fishing rights

    The Pamunkey Tribe and the Mattaponi Tribe are questioning a new interpretation of their treaty fishing and hunting rights in Virginia.
    Tribal members have been fishing and hunting without interference since a 1677 treaty. But a July 2013 opinion from then-attorney general Ken Cuccinelli (R) argues they must comply with state laws and regulations even though they aren’t required to obtain state licenses.
