The Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Ojibwa Indians approved the opening of an urban office in Minneapolis. With over 640 members residing in the Metro and surrounding counties the tribe determined the need to not only extend services to its membership but also access and network business, philanthropic and economic development opportunities.
Tribal Chairman Gordon Thayer said, " Across the nation the economy faces a major challenge and this compels our tribe to become more creative and proactive in building a stronger healthy community to our members on and off the Reservation, the urban office will also become a great resource to our newly created Lac Courte Oreilles Business Corporation."

By Mikanuk "Larry Adams" - On September 22 the 15th Annual Elders Community Picnic was held at the Minnehaha Park in South Minneapolis.  Over 300 elders attended the event that included raffles and prizes. An official proclamation honoring Norby Blake was also made. Blake was the former director of the Inter-Tribal Elders Services (ITES). She recieved the award from Minneapolis Mayor R. T. Rybak.    
The Elders Community Picnic included several health-related booths, as well as some crafts stands. The event kicked off with an Elders "Wisdom Steps" Walk around Minnehaha Park, with many elders stretching their limbs during the walk. The "Johnny Smith and Friends" band performed some of their Country and Western repertoire for the elders as well.

A 20-foot-tall healing totem pole loaded on an open flat-bed truck received blessings from Indian tribes as it made its way from the West Coast to a permanent display near Washington, D.C.
The totem and two flanking benches, all carved from western red cedar, will be installed in an herb garden at the National Library of Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.
Celebrating our successes; working together to achieve more

I am pleased to announce that for the first time in six years, Minneapolis Public Schools has made progress in narrowing the achievement gap between students of color and white students. We could not have hoped for more encouraging state test results.
Significant across-the-board gains were made in reading for American Indian, African American, Asian and Hispanic students. The gap was also narrowed for all groups except American Indian students in math.
These results validate the hard work and focus of our staff members, community partners, volunteers and our families who make important contributions to student achievement every day. We still have significant gains to make, but this progress in the right direction motivates us to continue carrying out the work of our strategic plan.

Why Treaties Matter: Self-Government in the Dakota and Ojibwe Nations
Experience a traveling exhibit, videos, and resources about treaties between Dakota and Ojibwe Nations and the U.S. to better understand the true circumstances surrounding this land, its use, and even the treatment of the land's indigenous peoples today. The Why Treaties Matter project helps establish American Indian sovereignty as an ongoing continental reality and provides a vehicle for all Minnesotans to learn new and innovative ways to create community. This is a partnership of the Minnesota Humanities Center, the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council and the National Museum of the American Indian. Learn, through a video presentation and 20 banners featuring text and images, how treaties affected the lands and lifeways of the indigenous peoples of this place, and why these binding agreements between nations still matter today.
