Jim gawboy shares a little about who he is and where he is from. Jim has lived in the Vermilion area for about the last 25 years. Jim shares that how the Vermilion residents, of long ago, are those that refused to move to Nett Lake and were allowed to continued to live in the Vermilion area.
Jim used to live off the reservation ‘as a white person’ for many many years. Jim shares how he was continually reminded that he ‘was an indian’ while working for the Department of Natural Resource for the State of Minnesota until he retired from that agency. Jim also shares that on the reservation he would be called ‘white’ because his mother was of Finnish descent.
