Native Nations

The First People’s of the United States of America comprise numerous tribes. The photos in this gallery are from a book I participated in called Native Nations about partnerships between the tribes and the Department of Natural Resources. MilleLacs Band of Ojibwe paired┬átraditional healers with the health clinic and elders into the school to build traditional items such as birch bark canoes. ┬áRed Lake Indian Reservation paired with the DNR to restore the Walleye on Red Lake which had suffered from years of overfishing. Now the walleye has returned.
