Band clamps down on tribal land access


January 31, 2020

The Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa announced a new policy Monday that limits access to nearly all Band-owned lands on the reservation.

Over the upcoming months, the band will post lands with signs that read “No Trespassing, Fond du Lac Band permit required” along with additional information on how to obtain a permit. Band-owned lands are defined in the tribal policy as “all lands owned in fee or held in trust on the Fond du Lac Reservation for the Band, the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, or any allotment land where the Fond du Lac Band is part owner of that allotment.”
