                         Appendix 8
 Chippewa Acceptance of Judge Barbara Crabb's Final Judgment
 May 20, 1991
 TO THE PEOPLE OF WISCONSIN:
 The six bands of Lake Superior Chippewa, allied for many years in litigation
 against the State of Wisconsin in order to confirm and uphold their treaty
right to
 hunt, fish and gather, and now secure in the conviction that they have preserved
 these rights for the generations to come, have this day foregone their right
to further
 appeal and dispute adverse rulings in this case, including a district court
ruling
barring them from damages. They do this, knowing that the subject of the
latter
ruling is currently before the United States Supreme Court, and has been
decided
in favor of Indian tribes in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and other
federal
courts. They do this as a gesture of peace and friendship towards the people
of
Wisconsin, in a spirit they hope may someday be reciprocated on the part
of the
general citizenry and officials of this state.
