Three Natives Win Minnesota Book Awards
whats_new_in_community_-_erdrich_wins_book_award.jpgLouise Erdrich (Turtle Mountain Ojibwe) has become the first writer to win five Minnesota Book Awards. On April 13 Erdrich won her fifth award in the fiction category for “The Round House,” a novel about a teenage boy on a North Dakota reservation who tries to solve the mystery of his mother’s brutal rape. The Round House is also a National Book Award winner. She has previously been awarded the Minnesota Book Award for “The Plague of Doves,” “The Painted Drum,” “The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse” and “Tales of Burning Love.”
David  Treuer (Leech Lake Ojibwe) has won the Minnesota Book Award for a second time. Treuer’s book, “Rez Life: An Indian’s Journey Through Reservation Life”, is his first major work of nonfiction. He won in the General Nonfiction category. Centered on Ojibwe reservation communities of northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, “Rez Life” is written by an insider about what Indian reservations are, why they exist, and where they are going. He also won the 1996 Minnesota Book Award for “Little.”
Gwen Westerman (Dakota) and Bruce White were the Award for Minnesota winners, with their book “Mni Sota Makoce: The Land of the Dakota”. “Mni Sota Makoce” tells a detailed history of the Dakota people in their traditional homelands for hundreds of years prior to exile. Westerman is professor of English and Humanities at Minnesota State University in Mankato. White is author of “We Are at Home: Pictures of the Ojibwe People.”
256 books were nominated for the Minnesota Book Awards, a project of the Friends of St. Paul Public Library in consortium with the library and the City of St. Paul.

Work has been underway to select photographs of the American Indian Movement (AIM), along with documents and objects, for a special first exhibit to open May 10th at the All My Relations Gallery in Minneapolis, at 1414 East Franklin Avenue, just a stone’s throw from AIM’s original offices.
The challenge was to winnow thousands of pieces down to a tiny fraction of what is being archived by AIM’s Interpretive Center, on Franklin Avenue, also near the site of the original offices.

Hard rock mining blues
In 1980, I attended the International Indian Treaty Conference on the Ft. Belknap Indian Reservation in Montana. I took Amtrak from St. Paul to Malta, Montana. After the scenic train trip, someone picked me up at the station and we drove about 40 miles to the AIM-sponsored conference site, which was hosted by Jim and Rose Main on their land in the rolling rez hills. It was a kind of paradise, as I recall. In the mornings I would bathe in the thermal pools of Big Warm Creek near the conference site, and then enjoy some of the abundant golden currants.

Fond du Lac Follies

It started with a little breeze, then grew into a bigger wind. At first, the snowflakes were small. They just kept coming until we had a genuine blizzard in April. My little village of Sawyer was mentioned on the National Weather Channel because of our snowfall amount. I have long suspected that Sawyer sits on a bump on the earth. We got 17 inches one day, then a day or so later got another 19 inches.
But never-the-less, the sugar bush surges on. We were ready on this end, just waiting for the trees to do their part. The crew consists of all family members, including sons Joe and Calvin, daughter-in-laws Jackie and Sarah, and nephew Kris. They work well together as they have in years past. My grandchildren will aid in the collecting of the sap.  They will help so they will know how to make syrup when it is their turn.
