DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Spirit Lake Nation have formed a partnership to enhance the Sullys Hill National Game Preserve near Devils Lake.

The Devil's Lake Journal reports that a ceremony was held Wednesday so officials could sign documents related to the agreement.

The partnership is intended to help the federal agency and the tribe find ways to enhance interest in the preserve and increase its use.

Matt Sprenger of the Fish and Wildlife Service says he hopes the partnership will make the many sacred sites within the preserve more accessible to Native Americans.
