Tribal Matters​ and Growler Jets

Pacific Northwest Coast Alliance

Tribal Matters

  • An increase in Growler flights impinges on the treaty-promised hunting and fishing rights of native peoples. Pacific Northwest native tribes rely on the forests, rivers, and oceans for their survival and way of life. The lands and seas on which they depend are subjected to military maneuvers: bombing practice,  ship-sinking, and sonar buoys that have killed whales, dolphins, porpoises, and other marine mammals.
