In Dakota language, the word “ina” means both mother and earth. Connection to place is powerful, and the area that is now called Red Wing, Minnesota has been a meeting place for people from all directions for centuries. Please join us as Gwen Westerman reads from her writing, shows her quilts and fiber arts, and discusses her multi-disciplinary approach to history as seen through place, with focus on Red Wing and the Upper Mississippi River Valley. Westerman is co-author of Mni-Sota Makoche: The Land of the Dakota, a published poet, an award-winning visual artist, and a respected educator and researcher. She is an enrolled member of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Dakota Oyate.
