Migizi has landed: Red Lake Nation College, Capitol buildings, veterans memorial blessed by eagle viewing


RED LAKE -- A young migizi swooped between two giant eagle-adorned buildings dedicated as the new tribal government center and college in Red Lake on Monday while spiritual advisor Eugene Stillday spoke of a vision of an eagle that came to him in a dream.

“Perhaps it was a premonition that I would be here,” Stillday said. The presence of Migizi, Ojibwe for eagle, was a good omen for the opening of the Red Lake Nation Capitol buildings on the shore of Lower Red Lake. A ceremonial ribbon cutting ushered in the new buildings, powwow grounds and veterans memorial.

Stillday delivered comments in front of a new black granite veterans memorial stationed next to the government offices building. Red Lake Nation College President Dan King said the monument wasn’t part of original plans but was an essential addition.
