The Fond du Lac Band is one of six Chippewa Indian Bands that make up the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe. The Fond du Lac Reservation was established by the La Pointe Treaty of 1854. Archaeologists, however, maintain that ancestors of the present day Chippewa (Ojibwe) have resided in the Great Lakes area since 800 A.D. Today, our Band includes over 4,200 members. The Ojibwe name for the Fond du Lac Reservation is "Nagaajiwanaang", which means "where the water stops".

11/16 Eagle Feather Permits: As of October 1, 2021 , the National Eagle Repository started processing all eagle feather permit requests, not the regions. During the 2018 tribal consultation on potential changes to 50 CFR 22.22 regulations, Tribes identified eagle feather permit process as confusing and slow. As a result of the consultation, the Service decided to streamline the permitting process by designating the National Eagle Repository to process eagle feather requests and permits as a policy change now. This policy change includes all new applications, amendments (e.g. name change, contact information), and re-orders. Moving forward, tribal members should submit paper permit applications (Form 3-200-15a) directly to the National Eagle Repository, rather than to the regional Migratory Bird Permit Offices. Below is contact information for the National Eagle Repository including address, phone number, general email, and link to their website:

FDL COVID-19 Quarantine Guidelines:

  1. If someone has symptoms and tests positive their isolation period is 10 days from start of symptoms, as long as their symptoms have improved and they don't have a fever for 24 hours before returning to work. (without taking fever reducing medication)
  2. If someone has no symptoms and tests positive, then isolation period starts from when they got their positive test. Isolation for a positive test is 10 days as above.
  3. If someone was exposed to someone with COVID-19 and has no symptoms they should quarantine for 14 days from the date of their last exposure to the positive person, even if there test is negative. This is guidance from CDC and MDH.
  4. If someone develops symptoms or tests positive during their quarantine for being a contact of a positive person, then they need to isolate for 10 days from that date. So for example someone may have started their quarantine on the 1st, but then gets symptoms on day 7 and tests positive that day then their isolation starts the 7th for 10 days.
