Coming to the Treaty Border Near You!

11 years ago, a conversation started between the bands and MN DOT. In hopes to raise awareness about land recognition and treaty awareness, 1854 treaty boundary signs are finally starting to be placed along state highways and roads which are visible when crossing over onto ceded lands.
On Monday, November 1st, 2021, council members from the Bois Forte Band, Grand Portage Band, and Fond du Lac Band, gathered just state-side of the border crossing in near the Pigeon River to attend the first of several sign raisings. A drum welcomed this milestone, and contributed a traveling song.
