Stop the Nisqually Jail (SNJ) would also like you to include the following in your consideration to STOP the construction of the Nisqually Indian Regional Public Safety Complex. 
The 1854 Treaty with the Nisqually Indian Tribe states in Article 8

“The aforesaid tribes and bands acknowledge their dependence on the Government of the United States, and promise to be friendly with all citizens thereof, and pledge themselves to commit             no depredations on the property of such citizens. And should any one or more of them violate this pledge, and the fact be satisfactorily proved before the agent, the property taken shall be returned, or in default thereof, or if injured or destroyed, compensation may be made by the Government out of their annuities. …”

SNJ would like to acknowledge that the proposed Nisqually Indian Regional Public Safety Complex will cause “depredation on the property of such citizens.”
