Makah Indian Tribe v. Quileute Indian Tribe, 15-35824

Affirming in part and reversing in part the district court's judgment relating to Western Washington native tribe whaling and sealing rights because evidence of past whaling and sealing activity was evidence of the usual and accustomed (U&A) fishing grounds of a tribe and the district court's admission of this evidence was proper, but reversing the district court order imposing longitudinal boundaries where tribes could fish because they did not match the U&A determinations.
