Please join Laura Waterman Wittstock as she talks with Executive Director Joe Rice about the new year with Indian students at Center School in Minneapolis. Center School has taken home the ribbons again for its organic garden on campus, a project of students and staff. Joe will tell us how all that happened and what he looks forward to in the new school year.
Indian Country has lost a great friend in attorney Ken Tilsen who died on Sunday, September 1. He established the Wounded Knee Defense/Offense Committee and was involved in criminal and civil trials throughout the 1970s. His papers are at the Minnesota Historical Society. Attorney Bill Tilton knew Ken Tilsen in another one of Ken's many interests in justice: defense of the Minnesota 8 - a group of young protestors against the Viet Nam War.
