Ojibwe

Matthew Stinar

  From our Ampers partners, we share a 2-part special report from MN Native News called "Rocking the Boat" Part 1 & 2.  Reporter Melissa Townsend brings us the story of racial disparities for Native communities like in one Northern Minnesota town, Bemidji.  

This week on Bioneers: Revolution from the Heart of Nature, we hear from Indigenous leaders Dakota-Dine Tom Goldtooth, Anishnabe Winona LaDuke, Aleut Ilarion Merculief and The White Buffalo Souldiers talking about a new paradigm and how mending the earth can change  us as a people.

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.

 All Summer KUMD is airing the voices of leadership on climate change.  Monday at 7 p.m. we bring you the special radio series Bioneers: Revolution from the Heart of Nature. In episode 1, Listen as Nalini Nadkarni shares her discoveries about the forest canopy, both scientific and inspirational.

 

In 2006, when she was 86 years old, Dorothy Dora Whipple was looking for a new challenge.  A fluent and lifelong Ojibwe speaker, Dorothy had just finished a three-year project for the University of Minnesota,  making and transcribing recordings of her language. But she knew right away what she wanted to tackle next: a book of her stories, in Ojibwe and English, with drawings to illustrate the stories and perhaps interest younger people in learning the language.

Women's Words on October 19 featured Linda LeGarde Grover of Duluth reading an excerpt from her book The Road Back to Sweetgrass.
