Minnesota Native News Special:               

Monday June 22 at 7pm, KUMD shares a Minnesota Native News special presentation. The Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission report officially recorded the inhumane practices of the Canadian Indian Boarding School system and the historical trauma of indigenous people. Movements for truth and reconciliation in the US are now emerging.  Listen for more on this issue from Erma Vizenor, Chairwoman of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe, and Professor  Michael McNally.

On this episode of Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa, host Erik Redix has a conversation with Professor David Beaulieu, the new Ruth A. Myers Endowed Chair in UMD's Education Department, about his research and the future of American Indian Education.
