Each week Minnesota Native News looks at social, economic, cultural, health issues and more facing Minnesota’s Native American communities. By informing and educating all Minnesotans about events, activities, and issues in Minnesota’s Native American communities this program interweaves the Native American culture into the rest of the communities of the state.

By looking at what is happening today in Native American communities as well as looking back in time, Minnesota Native News will help to educate all Minnesotans about the culture that helped to shape our state, how the current issues are impacting the state today, and will help everyone to make informed decisions about the future.
