Tribute to Dr. Charles S. Anderson, Augsburg President Emeritus

tribute_to_dr_charles_anderson.jpgI attended Dr. Charles S. Andersonís funeral a couple of weeks ago and was flooded with memories of our special relationship while I served as Augsburgís American Indian Student Support Program Director from 1978 to 1996.† We served on an ďAdvisory BoardĒ in 1977 when he was the Dean of the College and I was employed by the Minnesota Chippewa Tribeís Talent Search Program.

Our primary goal was to create a stronger American Indian presence on the campus which is located within blocks of the 3rd largest urban Native community in the country (The Phillips Neighborhood).
The committee was a product of the Honeywell Foundation and Augsburg College, and while he and I disagreed on many philosophical, political and educational issues he made it clear that he wanted to address the poor college admission, retention and graduation rates of American Indian students. †
With a huge thank you to Dr. Andre Lewis, President of the Honeywell Foundation at that time, we were approved for a 3 year grant. A job description was created and posted for a Director,† several candidates were interviewed and the position was offered to a local Native MSW who was involved with the National Indian Lutheran Board. The Advisory Committee and Dr. Anderson were pleased with the selection and he began immediately.

from_the_editors_desk_alfred_walking_bull.jpgHau! Alfred Walking Bull emaciyapi yelo. Cante waste nape ciuzapi yelo. Hello, my name is Alfred Walking Bull. I shake your hand with a good heart.
Itís custom in Lakota culture for the younger generations to ask forgiveness for speaking in front of oneís elders. Itís also our custom to give thanks to those who have come before us and acknowledge them in public.

With my recent arrival, the outgoing editor Cat† Whipple has been more than patient, guiding me during this transition of this great institution of Native news, arts and culture. In poring through past issues in my free time, Iíve been humbled by the trust placed in any editor of The Circle. Her work over these past 13 years is a celebration of our story, working through the lean years and guiding it to what it is today: the paper of record for the Native community in Minnesota.

Whether itís been issues like health care, reservation life, art, politics, environmentalism or any one of the myriad of coverage The Circle provides, it does so in a culturally relevant and sensitive way that represents our voices.

Fond du Lac Follies attended the 20th annual Veterans Powwow held in Sawyer, Minnesota. Once again it was an easy decision where to go for the weekend since this powwow is just down the tar road a half mile away.
Chuck Smith, the Veterans Service Officer for the Rez, organized this yearís event. Chuckís son Charlie was the spiritual advisor for the powwow. I wish we could have had a veteran as the spiritual advisor for veterans.

It Ain't Easy Being Indian

For the past few weeks I had been enjoying a little rest from the usual absurd life I live. I have all I need of food, more than enough clothes, a happy job, lively home and gas in the van to get around. I listen to my friendsí woes and I sympathize; secretly Iím glad itís not me going through their troubles. Because Iíve had plenty of my own, thank you very much! In fact I was becoming very close to saying IímÖbÖb..!
