Division of Intergovernmental Affairs The Division of Intergovernmental Affairs (DIA) assists member bands in securing the recognition, implementation and protection of the rights that the tribes reserved in the trea- ties. DIA works with the tribes, for instance, to coordinate intertribal co-management and to develop tribal model codes and ordinances. Staff also assist in the negotiation of intergovernmen- tal agreements that recognize the tribes’ rights and specify how tribes will implement their off- reservation treaty harvests. This includes help- ing to ensure that the quality of the environment is protected. The DIA also engages other governments when management or permitting decisions may impact the natural resources that are the subject of the tribes’ treaty rights. With regard to environmental management and protection, DIA coordinates GLIFWC’s par- ticipation in a number of intergovernmental Great Lakes initiatives including the Binational Program to Restore and Protect Lake Superior. It also assists its tribes in analyzing the implica- tions of development proposals that may impact the Ceded Territories, including mining. Public Information The Public Information Office (PIO) pro- vides current, pertinent information to tribal members and the general public on treaty- related issues. Off-reservation seasons and regu- lations, issues which may impact treaty rights or harvest, and basic education on treaty rights and tribal sovereignty are the primary focus of public education efforts. Using a variety of media, including the GLIFWC website, Facebook and Mazina’igan (a quarterly newspaper), PIO keeps the tribal and the general public informed of current issues and activities relating to treaty rights and also provides a tribal viewpoint. Publications such as brochures, booklets, posters and infor- mational DVD’s and CD’s are also produced as resource materials and are available through the website; some are downloadable. PIO answers information requests, coordi- nates media interviews, maintains a regular mail- ing for the newspaper, distributes publications to member tribes as well as schools and libraries, and provides information booths at education conventions, fairs and pow-wows. Resources are available at: publications/index.html. Bwaanzhiiwi’on—dance outfit. A dancer is attracted to GLIFWC’s information booth at a regional pow-wow.
