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. 

“The stories of the Bongas, all of them, are so compelling and they’re so intertwined with early Minnesota history…at nearly every treaty that was made with both the Ojibwe and the Dakota, a Bonga served as an interpreter….My book, I think, is going to rock Minnesota history a little bit, well, maybe more than a just a little bit.  ” – Barry Babcock
