DULUTH -- The Fond du Lac band of Ojibwe is continuing its effort to regain ownership of reservation lands, quietly buying property from Potlatch Corp.


The band has purchased more than 2,000 acres of Potlatch forest land over the past two years and expects to buy nearly all of the former timber company's remaining 1,000 acres within the reservation boundaries as early as next year.
