100% graduation rate resolution

The Red Lake Tribal Council took a bold and courageous initiative on June 13 and passed a resolution to graduate 100% of its youth regardless of what school they attend. The community leaders, parents, students and, of course, educators need to realize that 100% can be accomplished when we all work together. Think of what it would mean for the Native community if other communities announced that their goal for all students was a 100% graduation rate. All enrolled members of Red Lake would be...

Minnesota fights sex trafficking by cracking down on customers

Law enforcement officials and nonprofits across Minnesota are taking aggressive new action to crack down on customers of prostitution — often white, middle-aged and married men — and boosting programs aimed at keeping teens out of the sex trade. Advocates want to shift from police intervention to prevention, after years spent toughening prison sentences for pimps and overhauling how the state treats sex trafficking victims. http://www.startribune.com/ahead-of-the-super-bowl-minnesota-fights-sex-trafficking-by-cracking-do...

Mad Scientist: Ojibwe Doctor Named Physician of the Year

Ojibwe doctor Arne Vainio never expected to be anybody’s hero. Heck, he never took it for granted that he’d live long enough to get through high school, let alone finish medical school, marry the love of his life, raise a son and become a family-practice physician at the Fond du Lac Band of Ojibwe’s Min-No-Aya-Win Human Services Clinic in northern Minnesota. https://indiancountrymedianetwork.com/culture/health-wellness/mad-scientist-ojibwe-doctor-named-physician-year/...

The Power of Ojibwe Women

Ojibwe culture is not matriarchal in the anthropological sense. We trace our clan affiliation through our fathers rather than our mothers. Traditionally our hereditary chiefs have been men. Hearing these facts, an outsider might get the idea that Ojibwe women are not in the forefront of our communities. Even the thought of expressing such a notion to the strong Ojibwe women in my immediate family makes me shiver a bit with fear. https://indiancountrymedianetwork.com/history/people/power-ojibwe-women/...

Indigenous Women Are Overdosing Eight Times More than Non-Indigenous Women in BC

Indigenous people in British Columbia are overdosing and dying at rates well above the general population, according to new data released by the First Nations Health Authority in partnership with BC's coroner and provincial health authorities. First Nations make up 3.4 percent of BC's population, but are accounting for 14 percent of overdoses and 10 percent of OD deaths. In other words, they're five times more likely to overdose, and three times more likely to die from it. https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/wjnve9/indigenous...

Cops get kids hooked on fishing

Aaron Thomas, 10, grasps tightly onto his fishing rod as he watches the red-and-white bobber floating in the warm lake. The bobber goes under for a split second and then pops back up. He quickly whips back the rod. "I've got one!" he says. He's caught a fish — hook, line and sinker. http://bismarcktribune.com/news/local/bismarck/cops-get-kids-hooked-on-fishing/article_9da8f24b-94d9-54f7-a576-15c23cfe53eb.html...

 

Bemidji Pioneer: Building community: Bemidji comes together for truth and reconciliation efforts

BEMIDJI -- As Bemidji-area resident Kristin Neises decorated a puzzle piece in Diamond Point Park on Tuesday night and chatted with friends and strangers, she pondered one question: can’t we all just get along?

Anna Gibbs preserved Ojibwe language and culture

Anna Gibbs has died and if you know any history of the Ojibwe in Minnesota, there’s a fair chance Anna Gibbs had something to do with it. The Bemidji Pioneer reports she died of liver cancer on Sunday at 72. She was an Ojibwe spiritual leader, a role dominated by men, and tried to save the Ojibwe language and history, accomplished thanks to her work with Anton Treuer, the Bemidji State professor who teamed with Gibbs to write Warrior Nation: A History of the Red Lake Ojibwe. http://blogs.mprnews.org/newscut/2017/07/anna-gi...
