Raise Your Voice – Upholding native languages

BY PETER MOLENAAR

I have again had the opportunity to meet with Anita Gates at the Pow Wow Grounds Coffee Shop on Franklin Ave. Anita has an advanced degree in the field of education and is certified to teach the Dakota language. The local American Indian Parents Committee actively shares her concerns regarding the status of Native education. They are all willfully determined, even if feigning submissiveness is occasionally deployed for navigational purposes. The preservation and promotion of Native languages is a priority.

Should the rest of us care?

About a hundred years ago, Lenin addressed the chauvinism imbued to Russian workers. He stated, in essence: If you intend to build a new world from the ashes of the old, abrogate your own nationalism while making concessions to the nationalism of oppressed peoples. Actually, this is a fundamental principle.

What good are the Ojibwa and Dakota languages in today’s world?

When the Indian was taken from the man (stolen from the stolen children), the man was diminished, not “saved”. Consider that one’s self-image is socially determined and that self-esteem has much to do with the desire and capacity to learn. It follows that a commitment to the restoration of Native languages would elevate our nation as a whole.

Phillips elders walk around the world

BY THE PHILLIPS WELLNESS 50+ TEAM

It was a bold goal. Phillips elders set out to walk around the world.

Led by Phillips Wellness 50+, a grassroots group of community members working to improve their own health and supporting others in doing the same, about 40 people started the journey.

We were armed with pedometers and bright green shirts, and people joined us along the way. We did a group walk each Tuesday evening and, in between, each person tracked his or her steps and reported their progress.

Juneteenth Freedom Day

was proclaimed on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 by Governor Mark Dayton in the State of Minnesota. Juneteenth Freedom Day is an annual remembrance of the ending of slavery that promotes the celebration of freedom and justice for all Americans through an emphasis on continued education, achievement, and tolerance.

“The United States of America is a nation founded on the principles of liberty and justice for all. The Civil War was fought to ensure that freedom would be shared by all Americans, Communities throughout Minnesota and the United States unite on this day to honor freedom, and to encourage respect, tolerance, and acceptance of all cultures.” …from Gov. Dayton’s proclamation.

On January 1, 1863, former President Abraham Lincoln officially signed the Emancipation Proclamation, which gave freedom to slaves. On June 19, 1865, two-and-a-half years later, freedom became a reality for all remaining slaves in the State of Texas.
