Who is Billy Frank, Jr.?
Billy Frank, Jr. was a Nisqually Indian from Olympia, Washington. He was arrested more than 50 times in the 1960s and 1970s while fighting to uphold tribal fishing rights. In the decades since, he became one of our country’s most sincere and effective voices for clean water, flourishing salmon populations, and collaboration rather than isolation. Billy Frank, Jr. passed away on May 5, 2014. We honor him with our primary event space.
