From page # 7 of the student hand book--"The Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School shall give preference for enrollment to Leech Lake Band members, qualified other Minnesota Chippewa Tribe enrollees, other federally recognized tribal enrollees; and non-tribally enrolled children."

Tell me, based on race, if this does NOT fit "segregation"!! LOW1--you being an attorney---"open" on the outside pages of the website but what really is the agenda here--and the actual intent of the school? Does this fly anywhere else on U.S. soil--other than tribal schools? Name ONE school--open to the public that gets away with a "preference" to race....

Now lock the damn thread again but allow the FACTS to be out there!

I was wrong on the sovereign issue, all reservations are sovereign, only 2 closed sovereign nations in the country, red lake and somewhere in Arizona. Talked to my neighbor a retired principal from cass lake, a native he told me the bug school is for natives only. I am through here.


Segregated...taxpayer funded. The source--a retired Cass Lake school system principal ( retired in the past 10 years or less) and a Native American and lives on Steamboat Bay of Leech lake, I doubt is wrong..."segregated".

There was an article last week about the Fon Du Lacs plans for spearing on Mille Lacs this spring. They were going to spear their 2000 lb. quota over two days. It was pretty detailed. I understand the Mille Lacs band is the biggest band and they have the largest quota, 3000 lbs.? They have publicly stated they weren't netting and doing only ceremonial spearing I believe. So you have about 6000 lbs. left to divide amongst 6 bands to reach the quota 11,000 lbs. My question, if the Fon Du Lac members can reach a 2000 lb. quota in 2 days why would any band need nets to reach a 1000 lb. quota? My point is if there are nets around that lake for an extended period the 11,000 quota is being exceeded. By a lot. IMHO the only way you can remove the distrust is have DNR staff along with GLIWF staff monitor the tribes allocation. If the tribes want to monitor accesses during the regular season in conjunction with the DNR be my guest. If GLIWF refuses co-monitoring to keep everyone honest then they got something to hide.


Bright lights/harpooners on the north side last night...watched two "catch and release" 20"-24" 'ers go into the boat as they went by our place.

The Mille Lacs Band is big money....big purchases of property and businesses


Big purchases is an understatement.

"Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures, with more than 3,500 employees, manages all the Mille Lacs Band's businesses, including Grand Casino Mille Lacs, Grand Casino Hinckley, Eddy's Resort on Mille Lacs Lake, InterContinental St. Paul Riverfront Hotel and the DoubleTree Hilton in St. Paul, the DoubleTree Minneapolis Park Place in St. Louis Park, Minn., 2020 Brand Solutions and Embassy Suites Oklahoma City, along with other Band-owned businesses such as a cinema, grocery store, gas/convenience stores, golf course, wastewater treatment plant, commercial laundry facility, medical office building and print shop."

http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/business/4003604-mille-lacs-band-purchases-big-sandy-lodge

This is money on a Great Gatsby level.

All this as the state and federal reps the majority vote in agree with this Tribal quote-- "we need "subsistence" hunting and fishing rights!" Don't complain until you CHANGE your vote!!

This is my "comment" per today's latest headline : http://www.startribune.com/a-welcome-end-to-classes-in-a-leech-lake-reservation-pole-barn/374828581/

This school is also a "segregated" school. Or can anyone go there? Per comments--to the contrary--the Leech Lake Band is NOT "impoverished"? 3 casino's all these years could not "maintain" a building of this size? There is another side to the story....

I am ALL in for funding education. But this school is NOT a public school. The kids that go here can attend, if they choose, the public schools in the SAME area. .Who controls the curriculum--is it in line with the public school system--no?
"A massive overhaul of the entire system is needed". THAT is an UNDERSTATEMENT! "Selective Sovereignty" does NOT/has not helped Native Americans--obviously.

I hope it's out, I put my dock in today.


A few years back, the ice made it's first big move and was out about a half mile from the north shore. So this guy who had just bought a cabin along there, is rolling his dock out as I drive by. (I hadn't met him yet) I put the brakes on and stopped and told him "that ain't good"! He wasn't happy but he did pull it back up the bank and back to it's winter spot. Next morning the ice was 15ft. high on his lawn. LOL He learned, before it became bent up like a pretzel, as many others have doing the same.
YES...it is OUT!! Casting off the dock is now good to go....no live bait lol?

Curious, when the ice out is declared that would be when one could navigate a boat from Garrison to Isle without being obstructed from ice. Is that just theoretically, or does someone actually drive a boat to officially confirm? I'm thinking the former but years ago before satellite images someone would actually have to make that trip to "do declare" ! That being, it could be that official ice out years ago was declared somewhat later than now because someone would have to get in a boat and navigate across. I'm just trying to imagine the history of it all. Fun to think about.


I and a few others made many a dang cold/wet trips across from Garrison to Isle by boat to declare/confirm ice out. On a few occasions, we had to turn back...ran into ice we didn't see from shore.

Nowadays (the past 10-15 years or so) between better high power Optics we use and viewing from the highest point of land available plus the sky pics, it is much easier to confirm--as well as MUCH warmer. In other words--we got smarter--and too old to make that dang trip.

Ice out "bets/contests" have been an annual event as many years as I go back and beyond. Early on, everything was, has been and still is used to be as accurate as possible. Unfortunately, that meant too many times, I got wet and cold for 20 plus miles in a boat. Lots of "pressure" the past 2-4 days to get it right...LOL ( I put on over 400 miles the past few days "watching" the ice) Been fights/heated arguments over the years! From some vantage points, every year, even after ice out is declared, nothing but ice is in sight. A few times, people have had to go to a high point and use the 60 power spotting scope to believe us...

Thanks for all the updates Steve.
Do you know if the dnr uses the same data from the messenger?
The ice-out contest at my work states "Ice out is determined by the date and time Lake Mille Lacs is free of ice according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources 2016 Ice-Out record."

Yes....I believe they do.
