Case Study on an Ojibwe Tribe’s Relationship with the Natural World

Wednesday, September 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Ojibwe Tribes’ approach to the natural world is guided by the original treaties between beings (species and spirits) and the Ojibwe people who reside in lands now known as the United States and Canada. Region-wide declines in ogaa (walleye) have been attributed to many stressors such as overharvest by state-licensed anglers, invasive species, and climate change. Here, we retroactively applied the resist–accept–direct (RAD) framework to the process used to create an interjurisdictional rehabilitation plan for the Minocqua Chain of Lakes. Aaron Shultz received undergraduate degrees in Fisheries and Wildlife and Zoology from Michigan State University.  His Master’s and Ph.D. were in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences at the University of Illinois.  Presently, he is on the steering committee for the Midwest Glacial Lakes Partnership and the World Fisheries Congress, a guest editor for Water Biology and Security, and on the Board of Directors for the Fisheries Conservation Foundation.

Registration required by 9/25.  Wednesday, 6 – 7 PM.  $13/Non-Member and $10/Member.  Participants will meet in the Forest Room in Discovery Hall on the Discovery Center campus.
