Tribal Land Managment

 

Background:

 

The Turtle Mountain Tribe regulates 69,357.64 acres of land in North Central North Dakota within Rolette County. The Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation landscape is dominated by vast clusters of forest interspersed with an array of wetlands and multiple lakes which are managed for recreational fishing. The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa value our distinctive natural resources for their beauty, solitude, recreational opportunities and ecological function. As a result, we work to ensure the long-term health and viability of our diverse native plant and animal communities, for our wetlands, lakes and streams, and riparian ares, and of our woodlands, forests and grasslands. We safeguard the quality of our water resources. the Tribal Land Use Policy supports local working farms and ranches, protects priority lands, and helps conserve our natural resources and rural character.
