Penokee Mountains Heritage Park & LCO Harvest Camp (17min)

The Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe tribe opened a treaty harvest and educational camp on public lands in the Penokee Mountains Heritage Park, near the site of a proposed worlds largest open pit iron mine and Mellen, Wisconsin. This is south of the Bad River Reservation whose wild rice crop is threatened. The site includes an area that once hosted 200 Chippewa and Sioux Indian allotments in the 1850s and which were stolen, or deceptively removed from Indian ownership in favor of wealthy investors of original shaft mining in the area. Ancient mining artifacts in the region have been carbon dated to 260AD. The camp is open for hunting, fishing, harvesting and public recreational use as defined by treaty and public laws.
