This Week on Minnesota Native News, we recognized the 50th anniversary of the historic tribal boycott of businesses in Bemidji, Minnesota.  In 1966, leaders at the Red Lake Reservation led a boycott after inflammatory remarks were made publicly in a radio broadcast.  Catch Minnesota Native News on KUMD on Sunday mornings at 7am and Monday afternoons at 4pm.
