Leader of anti-Indian group focuses on new fight

During the 1970s, Barb Lindsay was involved in opposing the land claims and fishing rights of Washington tribes. "It pretty much wiped out the commercial fishing industry," she is quoted as saying.

Thirty years later, she says it's tribal sovereignty that is the problem. Tribal businesses, especially casinos, have an unfair advantage because she says they don't pay taxes.

"I represent the folks who are being put out of business because they can't compete with the tax-free businesses," she says.

Lindsay is the national director of One Nation United, a national group that opposes tribal rights. She also serves as executive director of United Property Owners, which fought tribes in the '70s under the name UPOW.
