Native American Programs Begin in March!

We will be hosting a number of events here at the library to supplement the up and coming We Shall Remain PBS series that will premier in April. The program focuses on the history of Native Americans through the collaboration of Native and non-Native filmakers in order to present accurate accounts of the past that have helped to shape the nation we live in today. The voices of this series are those of a people who have endured invasion, disease, war and assimilation programs in an attempt to abolish their language and culture.

Join us for a Book Discussion!
Jan Sears leads a discussion on
The Plague of Doves
The unsolved murder of a farm family haunts the small, white, off-reservation town of Pluto, North Dakota. The vengeance exacted for this crime and the subsequent distortions of truth transform the lives the Chippewa/Ojibwe living on the nearby reservation and shape the passions of both communityed for the next generation.
Copies of the book are available for checkout at the Circulation Desk
