Moose are important, spiritual animals to many tribes in the northern United States, Canada and Alaska. They are large and impressive animals that weight around 1,800 pounds and stand more than 6 feet at the shoulders. They are traditionally a main source of food for some Indigenous communities. As strong and powerful as they are, moose are not immune to the effects of environmental changes, overhunting, disease and parasites. Such factors have reduced moose herds to a point where some tribes, like Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa and Boise Fort Band of Chippewa in Minnesota, have strict limits on moose hunting. We’re acknowledging the role moose play in some tribal nations and learning more about some strategies for their continued survival.
