Ways To Subscribe

Thursday, May 26, 2022 - A new exhibit is opening this Memorial Day weekend at the Mille Lacs Indian Museum and Trading Post. It’s called “Women of the Big Lake.” It celebrates the contributions to American Indian Arts by Margaret Hill, Maude Kegg, Cheryl Minnema, and Batiste Sam. Joining us to share the story of these remarkable Anishinaabe women is Rita Walaszek Arndt of the Minnesota Historical Society. ~~~ Earthworms might seem an odd topic for a segment titled “Main Street Eats,” but rest assured, Sue Balcom isn’t suggesting them for dinner. ~~~ During an archaeological dig cleaning his office, director of radio Bill Thomas unearthed some North Dakota history – an essay by Wendy Bilen about discovering her grandmother’s past in North Dakota.
