Gichigami Hearts ~ Drought in North Dakota ~ Horticulturist Ron Smith
Tuesday, October 12, 2021 - Yesterday was Indigenous People’s Day, and today we continue a week of Native American programming as we visit with Minnesota author Linda LeGarde Grover, author of Gichigami Hearts: Stories and Histories from Misaabekong. It’s a collection of twelve loosely connected essays and autobiographical stories that orbit around Linda’s family’s history and Ojibwe life in Duluth, Minnesota in the twentieth century. ~~~ We share a story about the drought in North Dakota from last Thursday’s All Things Considered by NPR reporter Kirk Siegler. ~~~ We visit once again with horticulturist Ron Smith as the growing season is about to wrap up.
