  • Tribe suing WA gov over cigarette sales deal

    By Curt Woodward

    The Nisqually Tribe has sued Gov. Chris Gregoire in federal court, claiming she struck an illegal deal that allows another tribe to sell cigarettes in what should be Nisqually territory.

    The dispute centers around a small community outside the Nisqually reservation called Frank’s Landing, which has federal recognition as a “self-governing” American Indian community.
