Ojibwe group's wild rice gathering could test treaty rights

 


An Ojibwe group’s plan for a wild rice gathering event next week could lead to a legal test of the tribe’s rights under an 1855 treaty with the U.S.

A group called the 1855 Treaty Authority, which includes members of several northern Minnesota bands, has announced a wild rice gathering event on Hole-in-the-day Lake in Nisswa on Aug. 27.

But as the Associated Press reports, the group’s leader notified the Dayton administration they plan to harvest the rice without purchasing a license from the state.
