The Sawyer Summer language camp was just good. Can you believe that we had 1254 people? Last year 765 registered. This sets a new all time record of people attending the Reservation’s language camp.

In the mornings we concentrated on language instruction from our fluent speakers. We had fluent speakers visiting who helped teach. But before the instruction started, Rick Gresczyk called for a round dance to help wake the people up, to get the blood flowing. There was always much laughter to be heard at Kiwenz Campground.

It Ain't Easy Being Indian

People move on, that’s what they do; it’s the nature of life. There are some people who couldn’t move out of my life fast enough and there are others like Cat Whipple whom I will miss dearly.

We first met in Minneapolis when I worked for Native American Journalists Association (NAJA). I have deep respect for her skills then as now and Cat is certainly not afraid of hard work, just refer to her tenure as Editor of The Circle newspaper these past 13 years. The readership should know that Mz Whipple is an amazing artist too; I’m saving up to buy one of her cat pieces which I will display at feline-eye level for my furball family to admire.

diw_new_doc-amy_langenfeld.jpgThe Division of Indian Work's (DIW) Women of Traditional Birthing Program recently produced a documentary entitled Healthy Babies Healthy Futures: Ending the Cycle of Prenatal Alcohol and Drug Exposure. This documentary sheds light on the effects of drug and alcohol use during pregnancy in the Twin Cities' Native community.

The documentary highlights the differences in recommended treatment for pregnant women abusing alcohol versus those who are addicted to opiates. The video was released both online and at a community event in mid-May and features Twin Cities community members, Native organizational leaders, health care professionals, and a law enforcement officer. Speakers featured in the video include Dr. Lydia Caros, a Pediatrician and CEO of NACC; Matthew St. George, a Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force Officer and Minneapolis Police Sergeant, Native community members Tonya and Ella DuRoche, Maggie Lorenz, Aisha Masakella, Jason C. Smith, Collin R. Wesaw, and Joy Rivera.

business_loans-marv_hanson-front_page.jpg Even though the city of Bemidji is surrounded by three Indian reservations, there have been few Native American-owned businesses in town. Now, a Red Lake tribal member has opened a new restaurant. It’s believed to be the first American Indian-owned restaurant in the city. Owner Marv Hanson tapped into a little-used state fund intended to help American Indian entrepreneurs.

Hanson’s new Marvelous Fish House and Market restaurant is decorated with American Indian art and lots of historic black-and-white photos of tribal members from the three surrounding reservations.

The menu features Red Lake walleye and Indian harvested wild rice. Hanson is also proud that most of his 25 employees are Indians.
