Minneapolis — The highly publicized Ojibwe Indian "fish-off" on Lake Bemidji this spring has emboldened members of another Minnesota tribe to exercise what they believe to be their fishing rights.

A small number of Dakota activists say they plan to ignore state law and cast their nets in a Minneapolis lake as early as next summer.


Rest of the article...

Now, can someone tell me why?

Directly from the article

"Mato Nunpa acknowledges he's fighting for rights that aren't even relevant to his lifestyle."

"The group that gathered on Lake Harriet two summers ago didn't even know how to cast a net,"

Pretty much sums up the article

Under minnesota law written in 1968 it is illeagal for unmarried couples to um, you know I say we protest that one instead.
