Nisqually Tribe and Fort Lewis” examines the relationship between the Nisqually Reservation and the adjacent military base. About 70 percent of the reservation was seized to form the Army
post in 1917, and tribal members were forcibly removed from their lands. In
recent years, the Tribe has convinced the Army to restore access rights to
tribal members, and jointly protect unique species and cultural sites on post.
This cooperation was symbolized in the 2009 Leschi and Quiemuth Honor Walk.

    This is an awesome podcast!! I just learned so much about this part of history. I had no idea that Fort Lewis displaces so many native people. Thanks for doing this research and for sharing it!
