FARGO — The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa once lived on the eastern shores of North America along the Great Salt Lake, aka, the Atlantic Ocean.

They eventually migrated westward to Gitche Gumee, or Lake Superior, and for the past 127 years, they have resided on a 6-by-12 mile reservation in north central North Dakota, just 15 miles away from the Canadian border.
