Free Event: ACS Puget Sound - Undoing State v. Towessnute

22 Oct 2020 12:55 PM | Serin Ngai (Administrator)

In July, the Washington Supreme Court reversed its 1916 decision in State v. Towessnute, which upheld criminal charges for multiple violations of state fishing law against Alec Towessnute, a member of the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation. Along with doing so, the Court in its 1916 opinion dismissed the Yakama Nation's treaty rights and filled its opinion with racist invective about indigenous people and their sovereignty.

More than a century after its original decision, the Court unanimously repudiated the racist language of the previous Court and vacated any conviction against Towessnute in an order read by Justice Raquel Montoya-Lewis from the bench. Please join the Puget Sound Lawyer Chapter, and our panelists Justice Steve Gonzalez, Justice Raquel Montoya-Lewis, and Jack Fiander for a discussion about this decision and about overturning unjust and racist precedent generally.

    I wake up everyday with a smile on my face and sing praises to this good spell caster called Dr Isu who has done me a great favor by rescuing my relationship from break up. My name is Andre from Norway I used to think that I have a perfect relationship till when my lover started coming home late and everyday he gives me different excuses then I decided to keep a close eye on him, I discovered that he was having an affair with another girl. I was heartbroken because I trusted him so much and knowing that he has a secret relationship it hurts me a lot. I thank all those who placed the contact details of Dr, Isu on the Internet and today my relationship has been restored with love and care than ever before.
