Résumé : In the northwest corner of the United States, farmers have attempted to defend their place-based knowledge and heritage against the scientific and regulatory strategies of local Native American tribes who have sought to restore salmon habitat in farming areas. The apparent irony of this scenario stems from a set of relatively unique circumstances in the American Northwest. Ethnographic and historical evidence shows how a century of tribal activism to regain treaty fishing rights has converged with new forms of activism amongst farmers, whose counterdiscourses depict themselves as ecological stewards of the land.
