FDL County Board To Consider Request For Brothertown Nation Indian Tribe Status


Fond du Lac County supervisors tonight will be asked to support the Brothertown Indian Nation’s effort to receive federal recognition as an Indian tribe. County Executive Al Buechel says the tribe was moved from New York to what would become Calumet County Wisconsin in the 1830’s and were granted citizenship status. He says the tribe is now trying to get back its federal status as an Indian tribe so its members can receive federal benefits like medial benefits and economic development financing. There are about 4,200 people nationwide who are part of the Brothertown Tribe, but only a few hundred (260) live in Fond du Lac County. Also tonight the board will consider creating a full-time Parks Supervisor position and allowing an application to be submitted for a grant to build 14 handicap accessible fishing platforms along the lagoon in Lakeside Park.
