A comparison and contrast of the Lummi Indian economy of northwest Washington between pre-white culture contact times and the present reveals a radical shift in the support base. There has been a decline in the traditional sustenance of fishing, and a movement toward industrial occupations as a means of livelihood. These new endeavors are spatially oriented away from the reservation. The purpose of this study is to confirm this trend and to analyze pertinent causal factors in the changing emphasis.
