language_camp_-_beading_quills.jpgThe Nagaajiwanaang Ojibwe language camp was held June 13-16 at the Kiwenz Campground in Sawyer, Minn. There were over 1,200 people registered for the camp this year, with some coming from as far away as Norway and Germany.  The language camp offered different activities including a canoe race, a mini powwow, moccasin making, birch bark basket making, flute making, tanning hides, canoe races, and other traditional Ojibwe cultural skills. This is the fifth year the language camp has been held. For the first time this year, Fond du Lac Transit provided rides for reservation residents. The camp was started by Jim and Pat Northrup.

Marjorie Anderson, first woman to lead Mille Lacs band, dies at 81

marge_anderson_passes_on.jpgThe first woman to lead the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe in Minnesota has died. Marjorie Anderson died June 29 of natural causes, the band said. She was 81. Anderson served the tribe in east central Minnesota from 1991 to 2000. She was elected to another four-year term as chief executive in 2008. Anderson was head of the band when it successfully sued to retain hunting and fishing rights that were promised in 19th century treaties. Anderson was secretary-treasurer of the band before becoming chief executive. Tadd Johnson, who served as legal counsel for the band under Anderson, said the band adopted executive, legislative and judicial branches and separated business decisions from political ones. “A lot of those ideas were new to Indian Country in the 1980s when the band came up with them, and then Marge followed through. She was a great stickler for details and parliamentary procedure and following the rules,” Johnson, who heads the American Indian Studies Department at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, told MPR’s Morning Edition. Anderson received awards for her leadership in Indian gambling, tribal self-governance and tribal treaty rights. In the early 1990s she was a leader in the fight to gain tribal control of federal funds allocated for American Indians.

walleye_population1.jpgThe walleye population in Lake Mille Lacs is the lowest in decades, and state Department of Natural Resources researchers are searching the lake for clues that could explain their falling numbers.

A DNR survey last fall found an average of 4.8 walleye in each of the agency’s test nets, down from about 15 or so per net in past years. But determining the size of the walleye population is a challenge, said DNR Treaties Manager Tom Jones, who helps oversee the relationship between the state and tribes that also fish the lake.
