In 1855 in the South Puget Sound, war broke out between Washington settlers and Nisqually Indians. After the war, Chief Leschi, a Nisqually leader, was found guilty of the murder of two militiamen by a jury of settlers and hanged in the territory's first judicial execution. In 2004, the Historical Court of Justice, a symbolic tribunal re-examined Leschi's murder conviction and posthumously exonerated him. Lisa Blee uses this fascinating case to uncover the powerful, lasting implications of the United States' colonial past.
