Logan Monroe: Learning, honoring and teaching Ojibwe culture
Niimi’idiwag (They Dance): History of the Anishinaabe Powwow at Beltrami Historical Society
There usually isn't really room for any kind of anger or sadness [at powwow] ...because of these good energies coming your way from all the dances and the drumming and just being there with everyone - those powwows are, for us, the celebration of life...
Logan Monroe will co-facilitate Niimi’idiwag (They Dance), a program about the history of the Anishinaabe powwow at the Beltrami Historical Society at 6pm Saturday, March 26th.
In this Area Voices, Monroe discusses his commitment to practicing and sharing Anishinaabe culture, the positive emotional experience of powwow, the extra-curricular activities at Remer High School that influenced him, and much more.
… as Ojibwe people…We're still doing what we love. We're still doing things that we've done for centuries and millennia…It's really important to me that we keep being proud and showing our resilience to all these changes that we've experienced throughout our history… - Logan Monroe
