Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians Files Federal-court Complaint against Michigan Governor to Confirm Reservation Boundaries


HARBOR SPRINGS, MICHIGAN—The Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians, based in Harbor Springs, Michigan, has filed a complaint in the United States District Court, Western District of Michigan, against Michigan Governor Rick Snyder to confirm the Tribe’s treaty-protected reservation boundaries in order to best serve its citizens and to offer certainty to the local and state governmental departments with which it works.

The Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians is a federally recognized Indian tribe whose people have occupied the Little Traverse Bay area for centuries. In an 1855 treaty, the United States promised the Tribe a reservation—a permanent home—along Little Traverse Bay.
