Overview

Artist DeCoteau describes his education, career and his artistic expressions of Indian spirituality.

Art is a traditional means of expression in native culture and modern Chippewa artists integrate tradition with new art expressions.

The Turtle Mountain Chippewa (Ojibwa) Tribe and Prairie Public did a series of programs on topics relevant to life on the Turtle Mountain Reservation, hosted by Pam Belgarde. The series attempted to portray a variety of aspects of Native American life to the public, both Indian and non-Indian, including tradition, art, music, government, gaming, health, education, and economic development.
