Event description

Description

A dialogue between sovereign treaty tribes and federal and state government on threats and impacts of transport by vessel, rail and pipeline in Washington State.

The transportation of unrefined fossil fuels in Washington continues to threaten tribes’ treaty rights as well as the environment. We now live in an environment where fish numbers continue to decline and we have a presidential administration that is willing to overlook environmental issues and the trust responsibility it has with tribes for short-term gain.

In the second quarter of 2017, oil shippers reported moving an average of 156,854 barrels of oil per day by train—a total of 14.3 million barrels. It was also reported that in the second quarter of 2017, Washington shipped out more than one million barrels of crude from refinery or port docks.*

Now is more important than ever for tribal, state, and federal governments to convene and discuss ways to address the issues that threaten the future of tribes and Native people throughout Washington.
