running_wolf_fitness_story.jpgWhen the new Red Lake casino was built on the reservation line on Highway 89, Red Lake Chairman Floyd Jourdain, Jr. said in his State of the Band message, that the tribe would "turn the Humanities Center back to the people."The Red Lake Humanities Center, built in the 1970's was the former home for the casino and has been used for many things from hockey games to swimming.  It has housed tribal programs from Head Start to college classes, and everything in between.  Funerals, boxing matches, concerts, bingo, powwows, and more...the Red Lake Humanities Center has been a versatile venue indeed.When Indian Gaming began, the Humanities Center was used - for a short-lived time - as a bingo hall with a casino on the north end.  The bingo hall lasted only a short time, but the casino lasted until early 2010 when a new first class casino was built near the south reservation line.Now a refurbishing has begun in the area of the old casino at the Humanities Center.  Part will be for Elderly Nutrition, and another area will house a new Fitness Center.

red lake restores great pines 1.jpgRecently, the Red Lake Ojibwe Nation completed construction of a new Forest Development Center that will enable them to begin the reforestation of the majestic pine that once covered it's aboriginal homelands. Most of the great pine stands are gone and have been replaced with other species. They were logged by the BIA, and the resource depleted.

Now the Red Lake Nation is working to bring the great pine forests back. Part of the plan of the Forestry Settlement Agreement with the federal government requires reforestation of the Red Lake Indian Forest. The big pine area, which has been replaced by poplar and other types of deciduous trees, will be reforested with pines.
Of the project, Chairman Floyd Jourdain, Jr. said, "A certain amount of money has been allotted to reforest, re-stock our forests, I feel it mirrors the return of the walleye."

The Internet is an excellent place to listen to music, and one of the best ways to listen to music on the web is through Internet radio. Available twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, many traditional radio stations are learning that streaming Internet radio brings more listeners to their broadcasts. Some stations, like Thundercloud Radio, are entirely on the net, and are able to bring listeners in from around the globe.

Thundercloud Radio is an Internet radio station that plays Native Hip Hop, Native Soul, Native Rap, Native R&B, and Native Reggae. Featuring Native tracks from Hawaii to Greenland, Thundercloud Radio plays both upcoming and established artists on their show. The station's goal is to someday become the world leader in Native radio.

The youth of Mashkiki Ogichidaag "Medicine Warriors" are challenging all American Indian agencies in the Twin Cities to adopt commercial tobacco-free policies at their worksites. The program says it will help support the agencys' transition in several ways: youth can provide an educational presentation to encourage the policy change. They can provide assistance drafting new policy language to fit individual agency's cultures. And they can supply signage once the new policy is in place. They plan to have an event in September for American Indian agencies to tell them about the challenge.
Mashkiki Ogichidaag teaches American Indian youth about the adverse health affects of commercial tobacco abuse and promotes traditional uses of Native tobacco for prayers, gift-giving, blessings and medicinal purposes. For more information contact Program Coordinator Leya Hale at 612-722-8722, ext. 317, or email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

Governor Mark Dayton has appointed Dr. Anton Treuer, professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University, to a four-year term on the Minnesota State Arts Board. The board's eleven citizen-members are appointed by the governor with the advice and approval of the Minnesota Senate. The board is a state agency that stimulates and encourages the creation, performance, and appreciation of the arts in the state. Its $60 million biennial budget is appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature; funds are used to provide financial assistance and other programs and services designed to make the arts more available to all Minnesotans.
In addition to his teaching duties, Treuer is editor of the only academic journal of the Ojibwe language and author of eight books. Treuer has championed Minnesota' traditional indigenous art forms and worked to expand the definition of arts to include oral narrative and story performance, especially as they intersect with the Ojibwe language. Treuer earned a PhD and a MA from the University of Minnesota, and a BA from Princeton University.

Whats New in community -sally auger retires.jpgDream of Wild Health, an organic farm specializing in American Indian agriculture and education programs for the urban Native community, announced that Executive Director Sally Auger will retire.
Auger founded Peta Wakan Tipi ("Sacred Fire Lodge" in Lakota) in 1986 with her late husband, John Eichhorn, to provide culturally based transitional housing for Native people in recovery. In 1993, they opened a second house, Mother Earth Lodge, for Native women.
As part of Peta Wakan Tipi, Sally and John started the Dream of Wild Health farm program in 1998 to provide a place where Native people could reconnect with traditional foods and medicines, as well as rebuild their relationship with the land.
A community feast was held on August 27 to honor Auger's life work with gifts, a brief video documentary, and the sharing of stories. Operations Director Diane Wilson will succeed Auger as the new Executive Director.
