    9th Circuit allows Lummi Nation to pursue fishing rights claims

    The Lummi Nation will be able to pursue its treaty fishing rights claims thanks to a decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday.
    By a 2-1 vote, the court said a part of the tribe’s “usual and accustomed” fishing grounds have not been determined. The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe and the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe had been trying to exclude the Lummi from certain areas.
