The youth of Mashkiki Ogichidaag "Medicine Warriors" are challenging all American Indian agencies in the Twin Cities to adopt commercial tobacco-free policies at their worksites. The program says it will help support the agencys' transition in several ways: youth can provide an educational presentation to encourage the policy change. They can provide assistance drafting new policy language to fit individual agency's cultures. And they can supply signage once the new policy is in place. They plan to have an event in September for American Indian agencies to tell them about the challenge.
Mashkiki Ogichidaag teaches American Indian youth about the adverse health affects of commercial tobacco abuse and promotes traditional uses of Native tobacco for prayers, gift-giving, blessings and medicinal purposes. For more information contact Program Coordinator Leya Hale at 612-722-8722, ext. 317, or email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

Governor Mark Dayton has appointed Dr. Anton Treuer, professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University, to a four-year term on the Minnesota State Arts Board. The board's eleven citizen-members are appointed by the governor with the advice and approval of the Minnesota Senate. The board is a state agency that stimulates and encourages the creation, performance, and appreciation of the arts in the state. Its $60 million biennial budget is appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature; funds are used to provide financial assistance and other programs and services designed to make the arts more available to all Minnesotans.
In addition to his teaching duties, Treuer is editor of the only academic journal of the Ojibwe language and author of eight books. Treuer has championed Minnesota' traditional indigenous art forms and worked to expand the definition of arts to include oral narrative and story performance, especially as they intersect with the Ojibwe language. Treuer earned a PhD and a MA from the University of Minnesota, and a BA from Princeton University.

Whats New in community -sally auger retires.jpgDream of Wild Health, an organic farm specializing in American Indian agriculture and education programs for the urban Native community, announced that Executive Director Sally Auger will retire.
Auger founded Peta Wakan Tipi ("Sacred Fire Lodge" in Lakota) in 1986 with her late husband, John Eichhorn, to provide culturally based transitional housing for Native people in recovery. In 1993, they opened a second house, Mother Earth Lodge, for Native women.
