The narrative about Dakota and Ojibwe relations has always been told as singlularly one of conflict. When St Cloud State proposed an art installation in their new American Indian Center, Heart Berry's artist Howes knew right away what she hoped for. "This area is so important as this place between our nations as Dakota and Ojibwe people. I really wanted to work with a Dakota artist on this project. Holly Young and I both loved the idea of sharing the story of the gift of the big drum from the Dakota. The Big drum to me is such an Incredible gift of grace." This pencil to digital collaboration pulls together the old stories with a modern installatin by Turtle Mountain sign...

We work hard to build collaborations with local companies and businesses. Our work is coming from the Rez to you! We want to share a fun new collaboration between ourselves and a local embroidery at Duluth Screen Printing.
We know our community loves to see the stories but also where their dollar goes. We know we are all thinking about these questions.

A collaboration between John's Hopkins Great Lake Hub and the Fond du Lac Band brought together community members to share about their strengths and resilience.
