If you’ve ever traveled Hwy 2 between Bemidji and Grand Rapids   you’ve probably seen a stand in Ball Club.  It was operated for over 30 years by the late Tim Holm from Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe.  Tim’s family, friends and community continue to mourn his loss – but there is also a loss of culture and tradition that came with Tim selling smoked whitefish and wild rice from that stand. 

The Call of the Wild – the Creative Economy of the North Woods travels the highways and back roads of northern MN to meet the people who live and work here. From the crafters and artists to hunters and gatherers to loggers and entrepreneurs.  On this episode we meet the folks behind Crapola in Ely. 

Do you hear the Call of the Wild?  Do you know someone who follows their own path?  Email us

Area Voices tells the arts, culture and history stories of northern Minnesota.  Northern Community  Radio on-air volunteer Dan Gannon had the privilege of talking with three area youth who have traveled to North Dakota and taken part in the Standing Rock protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline.   Listen as they share why they went, what it was like, and the impact this movement is having on their generation. 

November is National Adoption month - celebrated by national, state and local agencies as well as foster care and adoptive family groups.  The goal is to raise awareness of the need for permanency for the children and youth in our country in foster care and waiting for families. 

Go to MN Adopt for information   or North Homes.

Mikki Anderson is the mother of 7 and joined us to talk about how adoption works. 

in concert this Thursday at Reif Center!

On the Monday morning show we checked in with Minn Post's Washington correspondent Sam Brodey. He's been covering the most expensive congressional race in the nation - the Nolan vs. Mills race for the District 8 seat. Listen to our conversation and tune in Election night starting at 8pm for NPR's election coverage. On the Wednesday morning show we'll update you on local races across northern MN. We also recommend election night reading of MinnesotaBrown.com as well as Minn Post for  live election results.
