KUMD shared an concert on Thanksgiving with Native American musicians Sonny Johnson and Annie Humphrey in an evening of  Minnesota music and stories of shared traditions. The KUMD event Ojibwe Then & Now included a full day of events celebrating Ojibwe tradition and bringing it forward, from the youth of Remer schools performing at the traditional walleye feast  to this evening concert at Weber Music Hall. This event was supported by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and by Native Lives Matter.

Singer/songwriter, artist, member of the Leech Lake Ojibwe, former marine, and mom; Annie Humphrey is all of these things. She joined us in the studio January 8, 2016. She had a CD release show the same night at the American Indian Community Housing Organization in Duluth, with a display of her art work. Annie performed for our Ojibwe Then and Now concert last year; find the audio under "Related Content" below.
