Port Madison Dialogues Session 2: Tribal Sovereignty and Governance

Sovereignty is at the foundation of the governance and way of life of the Suquamish Tribe. Learn from Tribal Council members Sammy Mabe and Luther Jay Mills; Tony Forsman, director of Suquamish Seafoods; and Tina Jackson, Suquamish Culture Coordinator, about what it means to be sovereign. Treaty rights are foundational; learn about the Boldt decision and other events that have confirmed the Tribe's rights to harvest in the "usual and accustomed" places in the Salish Sea and beyond, and the rights to self-governance, law enforcement and security.
