'A piece of home': Red Lake Nation College opens in downtown Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS - Red Lake Nation College (RLNC) aims to fill a void in the Twin Cities - offering higher education grounded in Ojibwe language and culture to Native American students.

"I guess I'm proud. Full of joy. It's amazing to have a space like this, especially for Natives," said Eliza Washington, currently enrolled at RLNC and also an employee of the college.

Washington, an enrolled member of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, lives in Minneapolis and has been taking classes at RLNC online and in person. But next school year will be her first fully utilizing all the spaces on the Minneapolis campus.
