The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin, the Coalition to SAVE the Menominee River,  along with communities and other organizations in Wisconsin and Michigan, are fighting for their right to a clean river. “As of right now, The Dog’s Belly and 60 Islands in Holmes and Lake Township in Menominee County, Michigan will be considered for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places,” says Coalition member Dale Burie.

“There is a lot of historical evidence that the Menominee Indian Tribe existed in the area,” says Burie.

Listing in the National Register provides recognition of its historic significance, enables historic preservation tax incentives for certain properties and enables review of federal or federally assisted projects. If you would like to write a letter of support before the January 28th meeting, you can contact Dale Burie at 615-512-3506.
