Native American Calling

June 7 @ 10:00 am

Host: Shawn Spruce

More than six decades after it errantly took land away from the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, the federal government is returning nearly 12,000 acres. The transaction resolves a dispute over the Minnesota tribe’s land that began when federal officials improperly interpreted a U.S. Department of Interior order and started selling off what was clearly Leech Lake land. Reversing the process was no easy feat and required a unique collaboration with county officials. Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce speaks with Faron Jackson Sr. (Ojibwe), chairman of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe; Ben Benoit (Ojibwe), environmental director for the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe; and Josh Stevenson, Cass County Administrator.
