The Red Cliff Fish Company, located in Red Cliff, Wis., opened in November 2020 against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is operated by the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa with the goals of supporting tribal fishers and strengthening the food sovereignty of Native American tribes throughout the Upper Midwest.
Food sovereignty in this context means that tribal fishers are sustainably harvesting healthy and culturally appropriate species that are processed at the Red Cliff Fish Company and then made available to tribal members, especially elders, in the Red Cliff community and beyond. The company also runs a retail market that is open to all. See: http://redclifffish.com/
