Leaders of Michigan’s Twelve Tribes are Against a Wolf Hunt

Ahead of public comment ending for Michigan’s wolf management plan, The Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition spoke with Nicole Biber of the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians. Biber detailed the perspective on the wolf management plan from the leaders of Michigan’s twelve tribes, and their rejection of a state wolf hunt. She believes that the recovery of both wolves and native American rights are intertwined.

When you discuss the treaties, alongside that obligation, government to government, tribal consultation. We need healthy land and water. If we are going to hunt and gather in the way we were promised. For that to occur, it can’t be consistent degradation of our environment. It breaks the agreement. – Nicole Biber, Odawa Tribal Citizen, Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians

Nicole Biber, Odawa Tribal Citizen, Little Traverse Bay Band Michigan’s tribal leaders believe that working together and making their voices heard will help protect the relationship between wolves and people in Michigan. Knowing that wolves are often feared for various reasons, these sovereign nations want to educate the public about the history and connection between wolves. Public comment for Michigan’s wolf management plan ends tonight at midnight.
