Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Names Solicitor General

On May 2, Todd R. Matha, Ho-Chunk, was sworn in as the new Solicitor General of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe.

Matha will be responsible for advising the tribe on tribal, state and federal legal matters; he will lead the Band’s Department of Justice which includes the Department of Public Safety and Tribal Police Department—with 20 full-time officers.

The Band provides a proactive law enforcement service that is community-oriented and covers the reservation and surrounding communities through agreements. He will also be heading up the legal aid program.

Matha worked for the Ho-Chunk Nation in Wisconsin prior to this position as an Associate Judge and then a Chief Judge. He will continue serving as the Associate Justice for Ho-Chunk Nation Supreme Court.

“The Mille Lacs Band and Ho-Chunk Nation’s tribal histories are strikingly similar. Both refused to leave their aboriginal territory and have persisted as uniquely independent sovereign nations,” said Matha. “My goal as the Mille Lacs Band Solicitor General is to continue to assert the sovereignty of the tribe.”

Matha graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1996.
