Tribes. Treaty Rights.
That’s what we’re all about.
This week, the treaty tribes in western Washington are launching a new communications effort called Northwest Treaty Tribes: Protecting Natural Resources for Everyone. At first blush, the only change you’ll notice is that instead of getting tribal natural resources news from social media and web platforms of the NWIFC, you’ll be getting it from Northwest Treaty Tribes. NWIFC is not changing its name and will continue to function as it has since its inception.
The Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission has been around for 40 years, supporting tribes in the exercise of their treaty rights. One way we’ve helped is by telling the story of the tribes protecting and restoring natural resources.
Over the next few months, we’ll be rolling out other projects under the Northwest Treaty Tribes banner that will help the broader community better understand the role of treaty tribes.
