A developing situation in the town of Lac Du Flambeau could leave some people without access to their homes in a dispute with residents and Lac Du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
The situation stems from the tribe taking ownership over four roads in a dispute over expired easement agreements that were put in place when the area was developed in the early 1960s. The more than 50-year agreements have not been valid since 2013-14, according to letters sent to homeowners. Access
Where’s my damn Winchester?
IT just keeps getting better and better.
I didn’t know Redbone was still around.
Just give the tribe their next covid booster, that’ll cure the problem.
No big. Cut your own deal with the tribe for road use. Sue the title company later.
They probably don’t need the white mans electricity, natural gas, fuel for their cars, grocery stores, liquor stores etc either….right?….
Seems like they did something like this before, at Wounded Knee SD in 1973.
How’d that turn out?
The Senecas would start tire fires on the Thruway every time the state tried to get them to collect cigarette taxes.
I hope the town or county or state clears a bypass that connects all four roads around the tribal lands. Make it an ice road through the wood for now, but leave these extortionist out in the cold blocking roads they no longer control. They waited until sub zero temps and months of snow before pulling this stunt. Good fences make good neighbors.
From the land of sky blue waters,
From the land of pines,lofty balsams…
No more singing, only wampum or scalps…
Have they tried giving them beads yet? I hear they’re suckers for beads.
From the Land of Ice and Snow
This shit happens in Canuckistan all the time. –Caledonia Standoff–
Send in 10 cases of Fire water & wait 3 hours.
Then see Dr. Hambone.
If they were my roads, I would have closed them also….
Railraod blockcade also popular up here.
Turdeau just takes it in the ass though and ignores them as he changes his fucking fairy socks.
Did they blocK the access to Lac De Flambeau CASINO too?
Cause that’s FUCKIN STOOPID!
I’m with the Indians on this one.
Block them roads on your land.
And all you that need to get from Point A to Point C through lands-not-your-own B…..talk nice, be polite, ask please. That may help.
What, but we’re driving only EV’s…
I used to play cowboys and indians when I was a kid. Might be time to start playing it again for real.
HOLY SHIT!!! I thought you were referring to a Punjabi Rock
“Those who choose not to leave could be barricaded in their house for an unknown period of time.”
We call that kidnapping. I would like to know the party makeup of the town council that has been negotiating. Normally it is the fucking dems that will pull this to try to keep people under their thumb.
And if it is only 2600 feet and it is 4 roads, I’m fairly certain that I could at least leave my “blockaded” home, which I had essentially been kidnapped to. I have weapons.
I wonder who originally paid for the roads and the ongoing maintenance.
“Indian Band Blocks Four Roads…” Watch out for the drummer, I heard he’s an MMA fighter.
A few cases of beer will settle this whole dustup.
How do you keep an indian band from blocking the road?
Unplug their amplifiers!
