Ecopoetics Along Shorelines

I found the most inspiring resistance effort by the Nisqually tribe to be the first resistance given by Lesche. To take up your own military from scratch and resist an entire country is incredible. His bravery seems to resonate throughout Messages from Frank’s Landing as an inspirational force of resolute determination. Even when the Nisqually didn’t have the numbers to fight back, they still found ways through continuous fishing despite game warden arrests or through fighting for the proper enforcement of treaty rights. Lesche’s legacy is that ongoing force to inspire the bravery that continues to fight for the Nisqually.
