Quick Access

Two of the tribe’s natural resource programs provide biological services for the tribe’s hunting, fishing and gathering reserved rights under the 1836 Treaty of Washington—the Inland Fish and Wildlife Department and the Fisheries Management Program. A third, the Environmental Department, provides solutions and information on environmental issues and concerns affecting the tribe, tribal members and tribal enterprises.

The Inland Fish and Wildlife Department serves as Sault Tribe’s biological program in the non-fishing implementation of 2007 Inland Consent Decree (ICD) and the 2006 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the United States Forest Service.

The Sault Tribe Fisheries Management Program is a biological program administered by the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians in the implementation of the 2000 Consent Decree for Great Lakes treaty fishing and the fishery portion of the 2007 Inland Decree.
