A Minnesota county is objecting to land-into-trust applications filed by the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. The tribe recently asked the Bureau of Indian Affairs to take about 113 acres into trust. But officials in St. Louis County are worried about the impact on property taxes. Of all the land in the county, less than 1 percent is part of the reservation. The tribe lost more than 80 percent of its 100,000-acre plus reservation but has begun to buy back some of the land.
