whats_new_woman_finds_mom_supermodel.jpgNative Woman Finds Her Birth Mother, Who Turned Out To Be Native Super-Model
Susan Fedorko found her birth mother when she was 40 years old. Her biological mother was from the Grand Portage Indian Ojibwe Reservation in Minnesota and her father was from the White Earth Ojibwe Nation also in Minnesota.  
Fedorko discovered that just a few years after her birth, her birth mother - Cathee Dahmen - had become an immensely popular supermodel, probably the first Native American woman to attain that status.
She also learns she is also related to the famous Ojbwe artist George Morrison, whom took her mother under his wing after Dahmen's mother adopted her out without her knowing about it.
Her book Cricket: Secret Child of a Sixties Supermodel, published by Outskirts Press in November 2012, chronicles her journey from Native American adoptee-turned "white" mother and wife, to a person reunited with her extended family.

David W. Anderson inducted into Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame
The Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame has inducted David Anderson (Choctaw/ Ojibwe), of Famous Dave's, into their 2012 Hall of Fame. The event will be held on December 1st at The Estate in Atlanta, GA. Anderson is an author, speaker, civic leader, serial entrepreneur, philanthropist, and the founder and former CEO of Famous Dave's Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que family of restaurants.
Before launching Famous Dave's, Anderson enjoyed a successful sales career with Fortune 500 companies and founded a gaming management/investment firm. He helped found three publicly traded companies, and in 1986, he earned a master's degree in public administration from Harvard University.
In 1994 he opened Famous Dave's BBQ Shack in Hayward, Wisconsin. Soon, the restaurant was serving up to 8,000 customers a week, and was voted the "hottest restaurant concept in America." The company grew quickly, adding locations throughout the Midwest and beyond, and in 1996, Famous Dave's went public (NASDAQ). Two years later, Anderson began franchising Famous Dave's of America. Today, the company has 53 locations and 133 franchises in 33 states and one Canadian province, and continues to grow, with earnings of almost $40 million.
