Washington State History Museum: The Treaty of Medicine Creek

May 10 @ 10:00 am - October 6 @ 4:00 pm

The Treaty of Medicine Creek
February 10–July 8, 2024

From February 10 to July 8, 2024, the History Museum will display the original, hand-written Article III of the 1854 Medicine Creek Treaty that guaranteed fishing rights to Tribal Treaty signers.

This historic document, on loan from the National Archives and Records Administration, remains a powerful reminder of the complexity of the Native American experience—loss, resilience, and triumph across generations of struggle to maintain culture and identity.
