In 1971, A.B. LeBlanc (Bay Mills Ojibwe) set a gill net in Pendills Bay on Lake Superior. The Michigan DNR arrested LeBlanc and he was later convicted of fishing commercially without a license and for fishing with an illegal device. This story highlights the treaty challenge and struggle for Ojibwe communities to maintain their identity through treaty reserved rights asserted in the signing of the 1836 treaty with the United States.
