Summary of the Colville Decision The Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Indian Nation (Yakama) and the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Indian Reservation (Colville) on behalf of their Wenatchi constituent Tribe (Wenatchi) both cross-appealed the United States District Court for the District of Oregon's holding as to an 1894 treaty agreement that the Yakama and Wenatchi share fishing rights in common at the "Wenatshapam Fishery" near present-day Leavenworth, Washington.
This presumption is analogous to the fundamental presumption underlying the Supreme Court's analysis of the Yakama Nation's reserved off-reservation fishing rights in Winans: that in reserving a right to continue to fish at certain sites outside the reservation, the Yakama Indian Nation reserved the right to prevent non-Indians from taking actions that would completely usurp the ability of the tribe to take fish at such sites.
