Pow Wow Grounds coffee shop owner Bob Rice, CEO Michael Goze of the American Indian Community Development Corporation and American Indian Movement President Frank Paro sent out a call for volunteers as violence erupted in the streets.

Pow Wow Grounds is well known for its wild rice soup and Indian tacos.

But now it's also known as the hub of an impressive community effort that saved Franklin Avenue businesses and nonprofits during the violence that erupted after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police.

It started with three Indian leaders who saw the destruction unfolding on Lake Street and rushed to protect businesses at the heart of the Indian cultural corridor along Franklin Avenue.
