Ojibwe leaders are outraged as state officials pushed forward plans to kill hundreds more animals in November 2021 wolf hunt.

Ojibwe bands are evaluating their options and plan to respond with a wolf declaration shortly. For tribes, the best use of wolves comes in the form of live animals, on the land, helping to enhance and maintain healthy ecosystems

In a press release on August 13, 2013 Ojibwe leaders respond. “The DNR Natural Resources Board made clear that its decision to set the wolf quota at 300 has nothing to do with science or stewardship,” said Michael Isham, Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission executive administrator. “This reckless approach to ma’iingan management is why tribes have filed a brief in support of lawsuits that seek the restoration of federal protection for wolves.”

Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife Commission is an intertribal agency comprised of eleven Ojibwe bands in Wisconsin, Upper Michigan, and Minnesota. GLIFWC works with member bands to both manage and preserve off-reservation treaty reserved resources. The Voigt Intertribal Task Force develops policy recommendations for GLIFWC-member tribes in the 1837 and 1842 Ceded Territories. Ma’iingan is the Ojibwe Anishinaabe word for wolf.

  1. I said all along Wisconsin refuses to manage wolves responsibly so they will always need federal protections.

    1. This is about a tiny minority of fringe hunters & politicians that hold power and abuse it. The majority of Wisconsinites want wolves on the landscape and are willing to fight for the rights to keep the Gray wolf wild & free.

  2. Wolves must have federal protection as states have failed miserably at creating a heathy ecosystem. Thank you
