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 traditional healers with the health clinic and elders into the school to build traditional items such as birch bark canoes. Red 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.
