On the sudden passing of Nisqually Tribe fishing activist Billy Frank, Jr.:
Billy Frank, Jr., leaves a lasting legacy for the Nisqually people and all of those living in the Nisqually River’s watershed. His commitment to tribal fishing rights and the protection of our natural resources will forever be preserved for future generations in the restoration of the salmon habitat.
We grieve with all of our friends and neighbors of the Nisqually Tribe. Billy’s dedicated advocacy for our region will always be in our hearts. Upon hearing of his passing at the Ramtha School of Enlightenment South Korea event, JZ Knight said, “He was a dear man to me.”
He is remembered and greatly loved.
