MPR News IN FOCUS: Sustainability in Indian Country
Sustainability is a way of life for the indigenous communities in Minnesota and beyond. Connections to land, language and culture all contribute to how Native people navigate the world and plan for the future — both the future they’ll experience and the one seven generations down the road.

In partnership with We Are Still Here Minnesota, MPR News presents In Focus: Sustainability in Indian Country, a conversation led by community leaders and moderated by MPR News host Angela Davis.

How are indigenous communities reclaiming the land, their cultures and their dreams in Minnesota today?

Oct 27, 2021 12:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
