Native American

Illegal fishing case

Escanaba, Michigan - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is going to have to seek other options regarding the case of five members of the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians.  The U.S. Attorney General's Office had been investigation the case for over a year and they announced that they will not pursue the issue because of complications with a prior agreement written back in 1836 that allows Native American's fishing rights.
