Punk rockers to raise school supplies for Anishinabe Academy in Minneapolis

 


It wasn’t too many generations ago that Minnesota’s Native American children were forcibly enrolled in Indian boarding schools and taught to forget their traditions in favor of American culture.

Anishinable Academy, an elementary and middle years public school in Seward, was founded so Native kids would have a place to learn the Anishinabe and Lakota languages, along with math and science. The focus is on diminishing the achievement gap between white and Native students in Minneapolis Public Schools.
