> Dear Dr. Patricia Clay,
>
> I received your forwarded message from Dr. Harris at Michigan State
> University since I have worked with Great Lakes tribal fishers for the past
> eight years, four of which have been with the Michigan Sea Grant Program.
> There are over 500 license Treaty fishers in the 1836 and 1842 ceded
> territories in the State of Michigan.  These fishers commercially capture
> about 6-8 million pounds of fish per year that are sold throughout the
> Midwest and Eastern coast.  Through several court cases, over the past 25
> years, tribal nations have shown they can manage and maintain a sustainable
> fishery now and for future generations.  In Michigan, the three original
> federally recognized tribes of the 1836 Treaty ceded territory formed the
> Chippewa-Ottawa Treaty Fishery Management Authority to manage the fishery
> through: conservation, scientific management practices, and sound policy
> development.  The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community manage their own fishery but
> have developed rules and regs for their fishing practices.
>
> In other parts of the Great Lakes, the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife
> Commission works with Wisc. and Minn. tribal nations on the many areas of
> Natural Resources development, preservation, treaty protection and public
> information.  Each tribal nation develops and maintains their own natural
> resource department to address numerous issues.  What I am getting at, is
> all the rules and regulations of the Great Lakes Treaty Fishery were
> developed on historic facts, records and treaties signed with the United
> States government and passed by Congress.  I live in the Sault Ste. Marie
> area where Lake Superior is squeezed down to the St. Mary's River that was
> originally known as Bahweting. When the Jesuits first came here in the
> 1600's, they recorded large encampments of Native people from spring to fall
> since this was the best place to capture whitefish (tikamig).  I have old
> photographs taken during the late 1800's early 1900's of the fishery in an
> area that is now completely dammed.  Many other western travelers also
> recorded the fishery throughout the Great Lakes region.  As a western person
> and an outsider to the culture, I am not the person to contact about
> Aldo-Pier Solari's inquiry.  I suggest you contact the different tribal
> management agencies directly at the following addresses:
