BEMIDJI -- The RISE Coalition and the Indigenous Environmental Network hosted a community round dance on Tuesday, April 6, in Paul Bunyan Park to speak for racial justice, environmental protection and treaty rights.
The "We're Still Here" event featured dancing, speakers and local drum groups.
"What honestly brings us here today, in a good way, is that our words continue to fall on deaf ears," said Nancy Beaulieu, of MN350, at the Lake Bemidji waterfront.
