Please reach out to the committee lead, Nichole Biber, to offer your help working for the protection of wolves in Michigan, sacred to the Anishinaabek, hunted and killed to be a "trophy".

Did you know the DNR does not make Michigans hunting rules? State law makers are pushing to create a trophy hunting & trapping season for wolves.

Voters have rejected wolf hunting, but the Natural Resource Commission won't listen to Michigan voters or tribes.

The artist: Let Wolves Live

A tribal citizen of the LTBB Odawa, Nitaawe is an artist living in New Orleans.  She created this drawing using pencil on unbleached paper. The central image reflects the intertwined fates of Ma’iingan and the Anishinaabek, with floral elements symbolic of our shared woodland home. The detailed, realistic rendering helps underscore the truth of Gidinawendamin - “we are all related”.
