On this episode of Culture Clique, we bring you a talk entitled The New Frugality from American Public Media’s Marketplace Money’s economics editor, Chris Farrell. Farrell will go over his pillars of proper finance and discuss how being frugal is not only about being green. His views will challenge you to put your core values at the center of saving, spending and giving decisions because it’s good for the planet as well as a person’s finances. This talk is presented by Winona State University The Lyceum Series and is funded by WSU Student Activity Fees and the WSU Foundation.
Anton Treuer helped get the grassroots Truth and Reconciliation group up and running in Bemidji. The group meets regularly to talk about race and to build relationships between our area’s Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities. In this episode of Anishinaabenaajimon: Minnesota’s Tribal Voice, Anton talks about what makes Bemidji’s efforts different from other communities – and countries – that have tried to have similar conversations. It’s not about finger pointing, nor is it a “get out of guilt free” card. Instead, it’s about understanding that race relations have been tense at times. And, it’s about making the next 500 years better than the last 500 years.
