"50+ years ago the right to fish on the Nisqually river became a fight with the state. The State game wardens were brought in to stop the native people from fishing on their own U & A grounds. There were some individuals who fought the state for the right to maintain our way of life and fish in our rivers. This day we celebrate and honor those individuals."
