Walker's DNR Pushes Tribe Out for Strip Mine | The Progressive

Walker's DNR Pushes Tribe Out for Strip Mine | The Progressive | What's Your Story? | Scoop.it

After the hasty vote was taken, Hurley resident Maureen Matusewic said, “Way to go, guys. Now that GTac’s illegal you’re gonna come after the harvest camp. They’ve been up there for months and now you’re gonna make a big deal of this months and months later? This is just one more example of Iron County looking foolish, and I’m kind of embarrassed about another goof up. I have a feeling this is gonna turn around into another big thing that is gonna make us all look like we’re yokels up here.”

 

The Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa maintains that their rights to hunt, fish and gather in a usual and accustomed manner are reserved under treaties with the U.S. Government dated 1837 and 1842. Should the Iron County Board vote to pursue charges against the tribe, it is unclear which law enforcement agency will be charged with enforcement, or which court would hear such a case should it come to that.

 

Furthermore, rights retained under the treaties with the U.S. Government may prove to be stronger than the DNR’s threats to Iron County of withdrawal of state support.
