High Country News;1/24/2011, Vol. 43 Issue 1, p9
The article focuses on the resentment of the Hupa Indians on the surge in commercial fishing at Trinity River in Northern California. The fishing bans on open-ocean salmon gave the Hupa fishers the opportunity to sell their salmon to off-reservation buyers. The surge of the commercial fishing within the tribe has benefited the elite and tribal government employees which has caused controversy within the tribe.
