The Ojibwa jingle dress and dance are a colorful part of powwows.  It origan  is as a healing dance but can also be viewed as part of a radical womans movement.  Grant Frashier attended the opening of the new jingle dress exhibit at the Mille Lacs Indian Museum. 

Grant Frashier is an adventurous kind of guy. Not only does he produce the Close to Home segment where he takes us with him to historic sites and local events, he has been a lighthouse keeper in the Apostle Islands and has worked a buffalo roundup in the western Dakota badlands. He's also has a keen sense of good barbeque and beer. Grant can be counted on to bring tasty treats to staff meetings as well as provide one of the most unique laughs you've ever heard. One time? At a class reunion, Grant went unnoticed until an hour and half into it when he started laughing.
