Arthur's Dock Put Away for Winter

Submitted by Tom Cox, 9/30/2015

The dock servicing Arthur's Ten Mile Lake is now out of service for the Winter. It will be back in service in the Spring.

Ten Mile Maps

Submitted by Bruce Carlson, 8/29/2015

Just a reminder that Ten Mile contour depth maps are still available. I still have a large number of them at the cabin. Just give me a call at 218-675-5580. Iím here through the end of September. They are also for sale at Swansonís or at Arthurís (all money for maps sold through Arthurís or by me goes to the TMLA).

Just today, someone bought 12 small maps, which will be laminated and used as place mats. Great idea!


Wednesday 7/15 at 7:00pm

A free concert sponsored by Honor the Earth will be held on Wednesday, July 15, at 7:00 p.m. The purpose of the concert is to spread information about the Sandpiper Pipeline and to encourage lakeshore owners to support Honor the Earth in opposing the proposed route of the pipeline. Winona LaDuke, of the White Earth band, and founder of Honor the Earth, will speak. Singer-songwriter Annie Humphrey will perform, and traditional Anishinaabe musicians, the Goodsky Boys, will present native music. .

TML residents should support this effort, since the pipeline threatens the entire Mississippi watershed.

Now through 8/28

An interactive exhibit called 'Why Treaties Matter' is on display at the Northern Lights Casino until Friday, August 28th, 2015. All of us who own land that once belonged only to the tribes should see this exhibit, and gain understanding about the treaties made with the Native Americans, and what Indian sovereignty is all about.


A Powwow sponsored by the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe will take place on Saturday and Sunday, July 24 and 25, in Onigum. The Grand Entran

ce is scheduled for 1:00 and 7:00 p.m. It is a grand and stunning event that is well worth seeing. We recommend taking your own lawn chairs, sunscreen, and bug spray, and some money to buy the delicious Ojibwe tacos.
