In 1975, U. S. Judge George Boldt ruled that treaty Indians in Washington are entitled to half the harvestable catch of salmon and steelhead. This decision has had wide-reaching effects both emotionally and economically. First the views of those most affected by the decision--commercial, sports and Indian fishermen, and those in related industries--are presented. Finally a studio discussion is shown with representatives from state fisheries, the court and Indian and non-Indian fishermen.

This was digitized from a 16mm film held by Washington State University's Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (MASC) in their unprocessed university films collection. The football game depicted here is apparently from Saturday, Sept. 27, 1980, in WSU's Martin Stadium. The...

This is one of several items noted as either Pratsch or MacKenzie. As MacKenzie was only active as a photographer from about 1903-1911, this is likely later than "ca. 1900" if this is indeed one of his images.
