Fishing Wars Memorial Bridge Dedication

August 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join the official dedication and opening of the Fishing Wars Memorial Bridge, or yabuk’ʷali meaning “place of a fight,” formerly known as the Puyallup Avenue Bridge.

The Bridge was recently renamed in a collaborative effort between the Puyallup Tribe and City of Tacoma. This project, along with future renaming efforts, not only promotes the revitalization of the Twulshootseeed language, but also commemorates a deeply meaningful tribal connection, both historical and cultural, to the City of Tacoma.

This event is open to tribal members and community.

Location:
yabuk’ʷali Bridge

Parking and Transportation:
People will be asked to park at the Tacoma Dome and shuttle to the site due to extremely limited parking. The City of Tacoma will provide shuttle service.

Shuttle pick-up address:
779 Wiley Avenue, Tacoma Dome, Lot G
