  • (North American Indian series, Part 3) The Treaty of Medicine Creek, made in 1854, which guarantees the Indians of Washington State the rights of fishing, hunting, gathering roots and berries and pasturing for their animals is now in hot dispute. To many Indians this dispute exemplifies, in part, the continuing abrogation of treaties on the part of White America in its dealings with the Indians. Includes comments by members of Indian tribes, as well as testimonies by the Department of Fish and Game official concerning the demonstration at Frank's Landing.
