Everyday Olympia takes on racist graffiti at Nisqually

Everyday Olympia:

Last week Sarah posted a message on OlyBlog shedding light on the travails that the Native American tribe faces as it fishes in the Nisqually River. I would highly recommend exploring some of the links that Sarah posted, but I’ll return to that later. While I am hesitant to put too much thought into what was perhaps simply a moronic and isolated occurrence, I do think there are some interesting issues that deserve a bit of attention.

Suffice it to say the Nisqually Tribe has an interest in the river which carries its food. With that interest comes responsibility, which I would say becomes the crux of the most salient point of graffiti appearing on the overpass.
