Red Lake emphasizes hope for the future in 2024 State of the Band Address

REDBY - In the midst of a new year, Red Lake Nation remains committed to highlighting its triumphs while addressing struggles of the past and present.

Such a sentiment threaded its way throughout the 2024 State of the Band Address on Friday, complete with song, dance and rich Anishinaabe traditions.

Opening with four songs from the Little Bear Drum Group, Fred Desjarlait, Jr. recited an opening prayer before the introduction of nation royalty and notable guests.

Tribal council members then provided remarks on several priorities. The ongoing effort to restore boundaries to include the entirety of Upper Red Lake and other land proves to be a top priority as the nation moves into 2024 and reflects on 2023.
