In this special edition of Minnesota Native News, we hear respected Oglala Lakota elder and education authority Dr. Sandra Fox talk about what schools must do to better engage Native students. This is the opening keynote speech from The National Forum on Dropout Prevention for Native and Tribal Communities – a conference at Mystic Lake Casino the week of April 26th. This conference brought together nearly 300 youth and adults working in education in 33 different states.
This is a special 29 minute edition of Minnesota Native News from the Nett Lake Village on the Bois Forte Reservation.
