Intergovernmental Policy Council Addendum

The area encompassed by the sanctuary includes the "Usual and Accustomed Areas" of the Hoh, Makah, and Quileute tribes and Quinault Indian Nation, who signed treaties with the U.S. government and exist as domestic sovereigns. Since the affirmation of treaty fishing rights in US v. Washington in 1974, tribal, state and federal governments have developed a unique management approach for fisheries in western Washington. This co-management approach, its underlying legal framework and Washington coastal treaty tribes' historical and present use of cultural and subsistence resources are explained in an addendum to the OCNMS Condition Report.
