Rather than a formalized structure with a president (or CEO), vice president, etc., we chose to form as a council. All 10 members of our council have an equal voice at the table.
Tribal affiliations of council members include Mississippi Ojibwe, Red Lake Ojibwe, Sandy Lake Ojibwe, Rice Lake Ojibwe, Fond du Lac Ojibwe, Pembina Ojibwe, and White Earth Ojibwe.
In conjunction with our formation as an unincorporated organization, we have released a revised Mission Statement and Declaration.
Protect Our Manoomin will continue to work in the legislative sector to oppose legislation that endangers our manoomin and ecosystem; to educate and inform Anishinaabe of the imperilment of sulfide mining - we will do this through expanded outreach programs and forums; and we will develop programs to engage youth and families in manoominike (harvest manoomin).
