Lac du Flambeau
Lac Du Flambeau is one of Wisconsin's many Native American reservations in the Northwoods.
Officially Established during the treaties of 1837 and 1842, the band has inhabited the area since 1745. The area was continually logged in the following years and became a tourist destination for families from southern Wisconsin and Illinois around the turn of the century.
The band acquired the name Lac du Flambeau from its gathering practice of harvesting fish at night by torchlight. The name Lac du Flambeau or "Lake of the Torches" refers to this practice and was given to the band by the French traders and trappers who visited the area.
The reservation includes 260 lakes, 65 miles of streams and rivers, and 24,000 acres of wetland
It is the home of medicine rock located on Flambau lake, and Strawberry Island
