Lac du Flambeau has been the permanent settlement of the Chippewa band since 1745. This area was rich in wild rice, furs and fishing. The name Lac du Flambeau was given to the land by French fur traders because fishing was done at night with the use of torches. Hence it became, Lake of the Torches.
The Lac du Flambeau reservation was sanctioned by the treaties of 1837 and 1842 and logging was the economic driving force. About the turn of the century it became a tourist destination for families from southern Wisconsin and Illinois.
The Lac du Flambeau reservation has 260 lakes and 65 miles of streams, lakes and rivers with 25,000 acres of wetlands. To increase economic development and self- reliance within the community, bingo and casinos were introduced. Revenues from these ventures go directly to the tribe for the benefit and economic development of the community.
