Jim Puppe has "Dakota Attitude" ~ Indigenous Women Fight Back ~ Sue Balcom on Local Food


Thursday, February 13, 2020 – One man, one van, and countless peanut butter sandwiches. That's what fueled the book "Dakota Attitude." Cavalier native Jim Puppe put on more than 100,000 miles to interview someone from every town in North Dakota. ~~~ A ceremony and march to honor Indigenous people who have gone missing or been murdered will take place tomorrow in Fargo. It’s an annual event that began in 2015. Nationally, indigenous women are kidnapped or murdered at a rate ten times higher than the national average. Some Native American women are learning to fight back, as we hear in this story from Boston reporter Quincy Walters. ~~~ Sue Balcom joins us to discuss local foods as she previews the upcoming conference of the North Dakota Farmers Market and Growers Association. ~~~ Doug and Christine have our What’s Happening calendar of events.
