Patty Loew: A Good Story about Ojibwe Treaty Rights

by Nick Vander Puy
Reserve, Wisconsin (IndianCountryTV) 

During the Ojibwe treaty rights struggle in the late nineteen eighties Patty Loew, a Bad River Chippewa tribal member was reporting the story for public television in Madison, Wisconsin.

To make sure she told a clear, unbiased story she requested editing from the toughest, most critical editor in the newsroom.

At the recent GLIFWC twenty fifth anniversary in Odanah, Wisconsin  on the Bad River Reserve, Loew moderated a panel about the social, economic, and political issues involving the affirmation of Ojibwe treaty rights in northern Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan.

Loew thinks the affirmation of Ojibwe treaty rights has brought many blesssings.

She says treaty rights have power to protect the land from the ravages of industrial life.

"We are seeing a cultural renewal which is a legacy of treaty rights."
