The Bad River Band of Ojibwe says it will start a camp of its own also in the Penokee Hills.

The announcement comes as Iron County seeks criminal and civil charges to evict people at the Lac Courte Oreilles (LCO) Harvest Camp at a meeting today.


This camp would be about the same size as the LCO Harvest Camp -- about five acres -- and Bad River Tribal Chairman Mike Wiggins says it would be a spiritual camp run by tribal elders.
