Fish in the Lakes, Wild Rice, and Game in Abundance: Testimony on Behalf of Mille Lacs Ojibwe Hunting and Fishing Rights

Synopsis

In 1990 the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe filed a lawsuit against the State of Minnesota for interfering with the hunting, fishing, and gathering rights that had been guaranteed to them in an 1837 treaty with the U.S. Presented here is the testimony presented by six scholars whose research eventually awarded these rights to the Mille Lacs in a 1999 Supreme Court case.
