Re: "Tribes want to control resource," (TNT letter to the editor, 5/5).
Enough is enough with the local Native American population and their "it’s all about me" attitude. Their refusal to work with the rest of the people of this state shows arrogance once again. How can such a small group hold an entire state captive? For those of you who are too young to know, I’ll tell you: the Boldt Decision. This abomination was thrust upon the people of this state, and now I say it’s time to make a stand and do whatever it takes to bring this before the courts again.
Just as the American people are standing up to the political establishment in this year’s election, it’s time for people of this state to let their voices be heard loud and clear about this injustice. I would encourage all fishermen to set a date to cast your boats into Puget Sound and start salmon fishing with or without an agreement. Sometimes it takes a little civil disobedience to make your voice heard.
