Bemidji Pioneer: Views from Red Lake: Middle schoolers explore where they're from in video

RED LAKE -- The camera soars over and through Red Lake: the water tower, powwow grounds, boxing club, grocery store, the remnants of St. Mary’s Mission Church, an “it’s life or meth” skull and crossbones. It lingers on a girl dancing in a jingle dress, a boy thumping on a drum, four survivors of the 2005 Red Lake High School shooting. It frames a Red Lake Middle School student.

“Red Lake Nation is where I’m from,” he intones. “There is no second life. So we have to make it right. And make our future bright.”
