More Indian rights protests possible, Treaty Authority says: Demonstrators seek meeting with federal, state officials


BRAINERD, Minn. -- The Anishinaabe treaty rights group behind wild rice and gill netting protests last week may stage more demonstrations depending on the outcome of an upcoming meeting with federal officials.

The 1855 Treaty Authority plans on meeting with the federal government Wednesday regarding their claim to off-reservation harvesting rights, spokesperson Frank Bibeau said Monday. Bibeau declined to specify which federal officials.

Bibeau said the goal of the talks is to eventually have Minnesota officials join in, however.
