In the 20th century, the impacts of commercial fishing threatened fundamental elements of Chippewa life. Over-fishing caused serious declines in the walleye fishery. The Red Lake Band of Chippewa turned the tide on the walleye fishery collapse. They have done so by successfully integrating conservation, tribal culture and economic development.
This report highlights the success of tribal conservation efforts. I hope the story of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa will inspire you to support tribal efforts for the preservation of wildlife and wild places. “Unity without end” provides all of us a purpose and a means to protect wildlife for our children’s future.
