Misleading Highway Signs Provoke Mille Lacs County Residents

The Mille Lacs Band called on the MN Department of Transportation to erect highway signs on the "reservation boundaries." These are based on tribal claims that the long-since disestablished reservation still exists. The secretly-negotiated signage campaign went up without the knowledge of any Mille Lacs County Commissioners. It's just another tactic to support tribal boundary claims. [...]

Time for a new approach to DNR ‘co-management’

Steve Johnson makes some good points in his recent opinion article in the Mille Lacs Messenger, "When will we be able to keep a walleye?" Mille Lacs Messenger, Nov 27, 2020. He says, "On the Native American side, subsistence and culture are the claimed reasons for the harvest." But Steve believes neither reason forces DNR to [...]

Is the DNR shadow banning MLFAC?

Buried MLFAC meeting notice excludes citizen participation PERM encourages Minnesotans concerned about the Mille Lacs Lake and economy surviving “co-management” to attend (now ZOOM) Mille Lacs Fishery Advisory Committee meetings.

Will Mille Lacs Co-Management plan avoid discrimination?

While attending the virtual MLFAC meeting, a couple of weeks ago, it became clearer to me how the MN DNR’s role in the lake’s co-management may still be discriminating against non-tribal anglers. They are charged with the job of protecting our Natural Resources for all Minnesotans. But that’s not happening. Instead, under the current co-management of [...]
