January 24th Implications of the Point Elliott Land Settlement Treaty of 1855

Travis Brockie Jr., a newly elected councilman to the Lummi Indian Business Council, the governing body of the Lummi Nation, also teaches Tribal Governance and Business Management at Northwest Indian College. He and some of his students will acquaint us with the Treaty of Point Elliott of 1855, a vital contract between native tribes and the U.S. government. We must continue to remind our neighbors of the responsibility of the U.S. government as it pertains to federal statutes, legal and affirmed federal court rulings, and working relationship with local governments and state officials when issues such as water rights, land rights and fishing rights arise
