Abstract

This article will explore the treaty hunting and fishing rights issues that have arisen in the state of Idaho with the Tribal Nations in the area. First, the background on the area Tribal Nations’ territories will be detailed. Second, the creation of the state of Idaho will be sketched within the framework of federal Indian law. Third, the case law that has developed in Idaho and in the Pacific Northwest regarding the exercise of treaty hunting and fishing rights will be examined. Next, the Rapid River case in Idaho in the late 1970s will serve as an illustration of this development. In conclusion, the cooperation necessary for continued good relations between the Tribal Nations and the state of Idaho will be discussed.
