Destination of the Day - Land Connections
Monday, October 11, 2021

As some states and many cities and schools celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day (second Monday in October) and as LEIF 2021 emphasizes the Sámi Peoples of Nordic Europe, you may want to learn more about the day and the growing attention to land acknowledgement, expand your cultural horizons via a live or archived panel discussion about Sámi literature, read about the fourth Artist of the Day from the Nordic Art video conversation on October 6, and join kids in viewing videos; eager and adventurous eaters can get to know Sean Sherman and Dana Thompson of The Sioux Chef, and their new restaurant, Owamni, in Minneapolis.
