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. Itís 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.

Hansonís 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.

Working as a Pediatrician in Native American communities since 1997, I have used photography and writing to share health† success stories in health promotion materials featuring Native American health role models.† So I was very excited when a 2012 McKnight Filmmaking Fellow, Norah Shapiro, offered to collaborate with me on a brief film about the Indian Health Board featuring women from our clinic who volunteered in the interest of public health. †

Ken Tilsen
I had some specific ideas about the contents for this monthly column; but as I sit down to write, I am mulling over the news that Ken Tilsen, a longtime friend and one of the great champions of American Indians is seriously ill. Ken was a mainstay of the legal defense work after the 1973 U.S. government siege at Wounded Knee. He was a member of the legal team that defended Dennis Banks and Russell Means, over the course of a lengthy federal court trial in St. Paul, which resulted in the criminal charges being thrown out because of pervasive misconduct by federal officials.
