Lake Conservation Webinar Series: Managing Tribal Fisheries and Employees on the Reservation
Tribal natural resource management agencies continue to provide employment opportunities within the fisheries field, and while much is known about Western ways of managing fisheries, native culture and its views on fishery management are largely unknown to non-natives. In this presentation, we give guidance on how to prepare to work for tribe, effectively manage employees, create fishery regulations, and more. We also discuss native culture, Treaty Rights, history, and modern day tribal governance/sovereignty. This presentation aims to inform those who are interested in working for a tribe or for those wanting to gain more knowledge about the people of the first nations.

Carl Klimah
Fisheries Manager @Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe
I have been a tribal fisheries biologist with the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe for 5 years, located in Central Minnesota. Since arriving, we have built a fish hatchery which has produced over 6 million walleyes and have undertaken multi-year and species acoustic telemetry studies. I received my Masters Degree from Auburn University in fisheries management and my Bachelors Degree in the same subject from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. I am still enrolled in school part-time and am learning Ojibwemowin (Ojibwe Language).
