Out here in this country
Springtime has arrived
It’s time to plant new seeds
Seeds of hope
Seeds of justice
Seeds of harmony
These were the prophesies
My ancestors left for us
All of us residing on turtle island
Be the light of a new day
Each color a celebration
Each heart/seed a precious star

Excerpted from an address by Sharon M Day to a school assembly this spring.

Frogtown Farm, Sunday, June 13, 2 PM

Join us for a performance that weaves stories of Indigenous struggles to protect our water, beginning with saving Camp Cold Water Spring, the Mother Earth Water Walks, the Nibi Walks and The North Dakota Access Pipeline. The water walkers and water-protectors presented a non-violent message that united Native people and non-Native environmentalists. Written by Sharon M Day, directed by Sir Curtis Kirby III, and performed by the dynamic youth of Ikidowin Acting Ensemble.

We've Selected the Contractor to Building Our New Building

We are very excited to be working with Noor Building Contractors to build our new center for art and wellness, Mikwanedun Audisookon. Noor Building Contractors is a woman-owned, minority-owned business that most recently renovated the Target at Lake Street and Minnehaha Avenue in Minneapolis. We expect to break ground at the end of the summer.
