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.

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.

 At long last spring is showing up around here. Us Nort’ Landers just experienced one of the longest, most miserable, record-shattering winter snowfalls ever. The snow is only now beginning to melt and there are birds chirping, but no dandelions as yet. The weather was so wretched it caused widespread crankiness with an 80% chance of depression causing moody, irritable-people-syndrome. Ennit?
