Fond du Lac land buy-back program nears end


Hundreds of Fond du Lac tribal members who own portions of land inside the reservation have only a few weeks left to participate in a federal buy-back program aimed at consolidating reservation land in the hands of tribal government.

The program, which started last year, is wrapping up in October, said Patti DuFault, coordinator of the buy-back effort for the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.

The Fond du Lac band had $3.8 million available for the program that is trying to reach out to about 3,200 different owners of small shares of land totaling about 8,000 acres.
