Submitted by: Swinomish, Tulalip, Suquamish, and Lummi Tribes
This is a deposition of Robert Purser, Jr., the Fisheries Manager of the Suquamish Tribe. In this deposition the unique usual and accustomed fishing rights of the Suquamish are discussed, as well as the fears that Tribe members have regarding the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline. Although the rights of the Suquamish are directly affected by the pipeline, Kinder Morgan did not consult with the Tribe at any point.
