A group of Nisqually tribal members traveled to Washington, D.C., this week to witness the installation of the Medicine Creek Treaty as part of the Nation to Nation exhibit that opened late last year.

Treaties are rotated through the exhibit and the importance of the types of treaties are discussed. The Medicine Creek Treaty is used to illustrate the fishing rights reserved by the tribes and the importance of it to the landmark Boldt decision.
