1911 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98402

On February 12, 1974, US District Court Judge George Boldt rendered what some consider one of the most significant court decisions issued during the twentieth century involving Native rights. To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Boldt Decision, WSHS is hosting a symposium exploring the history of this ruling that served as an affirmation of Tribal fishing rights and sovereignty. Guests will also have the rare opportunity to view the 1854 Treaty of Medicine Creek.
