The Dream of Wild Health farm awarded the inaugural Sally Auger Rising Star Youth Scholarship at their annual Community Feast on August 25th. Wicahpi Cavanaugh was honored for his exemplary performance and commitment to education.

He participates in Sundance and powwows, belongs to a drum group, and maintains a healthy lifestyle. Wicahpi recently started as a freshman at Minneapolis Community and Technical College.

The Board of Trustees of Leech Lake Tribal College has announced that Dr. Donald Day, Director of the American Indian Resource Center at Bemidji State University, has been selected as the next President of the College, effective August 13. He will succeed Dr. Ginny Carney, who is retiring in August after more than a decade of service at LLTC.
In announcing the appointment of Day, Rose Robinson, Chair of the Leech Lake Tribal College Board of Trustees, said, "On behalf of the LLTC Board of Trustees, I extend a warm welcome to Dr. Day. We are all looking forward to working with Don as he steps into this leadership role at an entity that is so important to our community."
Day's career in education spans more than 35 years, and has covered a wide range of roles including academic counseling, teaching, research, student services, curriculum development, and administration, including a successful stint as president of Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College.  Day mentioned that one of his proudest accomplishments was gaining approval from the Higher Learning Commission for FDLTCC to offer its first ever four-year degree program - a big leap forward for any community college.
"Leech Lake Tribal College is an awesome institution with strong academic programs that are grounded in Anishinaabeg values" Day said. "I look forward to working for my people again and expanding the already impressive services and outreach efforts in which the college faculty and staff are now engaged."

whats_new_adam_beach_at_powwow.jpgMeeting Actor Adam Beach
(By Rachel Peirce) In June actor Adam Beach (Aboriginal Saulteaux tribe of Canada) made an impromptu appearance at the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe's 21st Annual Hinckley Competition Powwow. The contest powwow was held from June 15 through June 17 at the Grand Casino Hinckley powwow grounds.
On Friday evening people excitely gathered around the arrival of Beach, who has appeared in Smoke Signals, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Ladies began to scream and the audience cheered loudly until Beach borrowed the microphone from the M.C. to tell his fans that regrettably he was not single and had brought his girlfriend with him (actress Leah Gibson).
I was lucky to get a moment of Beach's time. I had my almost two-year old baby, daughter in my arms. I was honored that Beach made a cameo appearance at Hinckley, and hundreds of other American Indian women that day were too.
