Thursday, June 18, 2020 - Three North Dakotans are among the 24 Bush Fellows for 2020. Rounding out our interviews with the three honored North Dakotans, we visit with David Archambault II, the former chairman for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. He’s working to help his Native nation build their own homes, produce their own food and generate their own power. ~~~ tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay titled “For Those that Dwell in a New Territory.” ~~~ Later this month, the 30th Annual Midwest Book Awards will be announced. Three of the finalists come from North Dakota State University Press. One of them is "Still" by father and daughter Rebecca and Kenneth Bender. Rebecca joined us in 2019 when the book was released. It's a combination biography-memoir -- a history of five generations of North Dakotans. Today we share an encore presentation of that conversation.~~~ Sue Balcom joins us for Main Street Eats to talk about mulching and other timely gardening advice.
