Virtually all “Land Cession” Treaties throughout the Upper Great Lakes region retain the right to hunt, fish, and gather on “public lands.”  The Courts have upheld these rights.  Based on the language of the 1836 Treaty, for example, the 2007 Inland Consent Decree “is intended to resolve conclusively [Treaty Right] claims, and to provide for the protection of the resources in the 1836 Ceded Territory.”

In order to insure that “states” live up to their Treaty obligations to “protect the resources,” this Idle No More action group will seek to enforce Article 32 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People throughout the  entire Upper Great Lakes region by demanding that “states” obtain our “free, informed, and prior consent” before any activity with the potential to harm the resources on any and all “public lands” be undertaken.

    Thank you Phil for this info. We need more input from all concerned. More info on mineral rights are essential. The cost to all Americans because of the very low rights makes us all pay since less revenue and much less Federal oversight is available. The way “big business” gets what they want is less inspection Federal and State.
