Lakes and rivers containing Invasive species
1854 Treaty Authority has updated the list of waterways In the Ceded Territory containing aquatic invasive species.
2015 Netting Clinic
The 4th annual Netting Clinic was held Friday May 1st at Lake Vermilion. Over 40 students from four area schools participated. 1854 Treaty Authority Conservation staff discussed what you need before setting nets in the Ceded Territory. After the nets were pulled, students helped pick fish from the nets and band members gave a great presentation on how to filet the day's catch. All got to enjoy a fish fry before heading home.
Chi Miigwech to the Elders who gave the blessing and shared their stories, and to everyone for helping make the day a success!
Check out the photo album and videos from the event on 1854's FaceBook page!
superior National forest camping
The Grand Portage and Bois Forte Bands entered into (in 2014) a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the US Forest Service (USFS) to allow for Band members use of designated campgrounds within the 1854 Treaty Area exempt of fees.
The information in the Superior National Forest Camping General Information Booklet provides for campground availabilities, necessary logistics, and USFS regulations which must be adhered to while partaking in this opportunity.
In addition, the 1854 Treaty Authority has been delegated the authority by the respective Tribal Councils to regulate specific camping related activities. Please make sure to acquire the 1854 Treaty Authority Superior National Forest Camping Regulations.
