The Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Ojibwa Indians approved the opening of an urban office in Minneapolis. With over 640 members residing in the Metro and surrounding counties the tribe determined the need to not only extend services to its membership but also access and network business, philanthropic and economic development opportunities.
Tribal Chairman Gordon Thayer said, " Across the nation the economy faces a major challenge and this compels our tribe to become more creative and proactive in building a stronger healthy community to our members on and off the Reservation, the urban office will also become a great resource to our newly created Lac Courte Oreilles Business Corporation."
In addition to providing essential services to its members residing in the metro area and those traveling to medical appointments from the Reservation, the office will continue to issue Treaty hunting permits, assist with enrollment questions, coordination of Indian Child Welfare Act cases and information and referral services.
Starting October 3 the office will be located at 2020 Bloomington Avenue South
in the First Nations Recovery Center building in Minneapolis. For more information, call Iva Bunker, 612-871-1208.

I am thankful that tribes have their own court system. This is an advancement for the native people that we should be grateful for. The alternatives aren't a pretty scenario.
