    Excerpt: ... Adam Kuhl Response Paper Walleye War My Own Backyard In the weekly readings I have grown accustomed to reading about strange customs of faraway groups of people. This week, however, I was surprised to be reading about a place that is mere miles away. I've driven through the area that was described in the beginning of the book so it was eerie and interesting to hear it described through the mouth of an author to a reader that he assumed had never been to. It made me wonder if someone were to read the book in California or Florida if they would see the baron landscape described and think of it as I did with the barren arctic that was described in The Reindeer People. The topic of the Walleye war is one that hits close to home for me, as I am a game fisher myself. I have heard of this going on before reading the book, but only from disgruntled fishermen whom I had ventured onto the lakes with who complained about the fishing not being what it used to be because of the over fishing that was being done by the Indi ...

    Excerpt: ... Week 10 Summary This week we read the second half of The Walleye War , and thus concluding this ethnography about the Ojibwe and their struggle to secure their rights as spear-fishers. The conflict becomes quite heated, with the Indians being subjected to ridiculed with "colorful" slogans and various groups outside the conflict taking sides and getting involved. The Indians were dehumanized in a way that made it easier to oppose them. With all this chaos surrounding the conflict, it would seem that the initial problem went from being one of politics to one of a racial caliber. This was largely brought on by the media attention that the conflict received, and one could definitely argue that it was sensationalized and became less and less about the actual problem. The way that the ethnography was presented in The Walleye War , greatly influenced the way one (or at least I) view this debate. It seemed to be very impersonal, and almost read like a boring news report. Nesper was virtually an outsider looking in; an ...

    Week 9 reading summary

    Wisconsin, ANTHRO 104

    Excerpt: ... Becky Hill March 26, 2008 TA: Charitie Hyman WEEK 9 Reading Summary The Walleye War is about the Ojibwa Indians on the Lac du flambeau band by Lake Superior. After seven years of conflict over their spearfishing traditions of hinting, six of these Indian tribes came together to for the Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Commission, this law was passed in 1983. The state tried to buy out the Ojibwa Indians and pay them $300 per fish that they speared, but they turned the offer down. The Indians feared that they would lose their historical culture, especially their language, which is really important for the history of their people. Hunting and fishing are very important symbols of ethnicity of the Ojibwa people, which is why they fought to keep their ways of spearfishing, The Indians of the Lac du Flambeau band speak Anishinaabemowin, which is taught in their schools and used to speak to elders, and also in their religion. The Ojibwa share a polytheistic view of religion, meaning they worship many gods or spirits. ...

    Excerpt: ... Week 9 Summary This week we read the first half of The Walleye War , which is the story of a tribe of Chippewa Indians. The Lac du Flambeau band is a group of fishing tribesman that the story focuses around. We immediately learn of the conflict that the Flambeau have been having in Northern Wisconsin. I found it very unusual how the neighboring, non Indian community and the state felt about the rights of the Flambeau. The natives felt that they had a right to spear fish anywhere at any time. The Feds agreed with this and put it into action after a ten year struggle. Natives found themselves struggling with the hunting rights, spear fishing was illegal and nobody could fish during the spawning season. These were both practices of the Walleye fisherman. I found it interesting how they tried hard to blend in with society economically, including the creation of a fish hatchery to restock lakes that they had over-fished. I do agree with the state though, on many issues. For example, men left to shoot deer right of ...
