History

The Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa is a Tribe of Ojibwe. They migrated to the place where food grows on the water, which is a reference to wild rice or manomin, a gift from the Creator. The Bad River Band is located on a 125,000+ acre reservation in Northern Wisconsin on the South shore of Lake Superior (known by the tribe as Gichi Gami). The reservation is over 90% wetland and kept in its natural state whenever possible by the tribe. The land base plus almost 200 acres on Madeline Island was set aside for the Bad River Band in the treaty of 1854. The treaty was finalized September 30, 1854 at Lapointe on Madeline Island, longtime capital and cultural center of the Ojibwe.
