Preserving Ojibwe Treaty Rights

Boozhoo! (Hello!) Welcome to the Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission’s (GLIFWC) “Minwaajimo – Telling a Good Story: Preserving Ojibwe Treaty Rights for the Past 25 Years” website.

Minwaajimo means ‘telling a good story.’ These stories here are only meant to start the conversation, to invite people of all ages to understand the historical basis of treaty rights, the struggles of the Ojibwe people to have the rights affirmed and implemented, and the critical link between treaty rights and the continuance of Ojibwe lifeways into the future. Enjoy the words preserved here as part of a good story still in the making. There will be more to be told in the next 25 years.
