Veteran's Voices returns to KUMD, weekdays at 7am on Northland Morning.  Tune in each morning in November to hear personal, first-hand accounts form Minnesota Vietnam Veterans. With episodes of "The Jungle," "The Boy Officer" and "Living with PTSD" Minnesota veterans recount the weight they carry from the Vietnam War. 

This Week on Minnesota Native News, we recognized the 50th anniversary of the historic tribal boycott of businesses in Bemidji, Minnesota.  In 1966, leaders at the Red Lake Reservation led a boycott after inflammatory remarks were made publicly in a radio broadcast.  Catch Minnesota Native News on KUMD on Sunday mornings at 7am and Monday afternoons at 4pm. 

Minnesota Native News is compiled and created by Ampers: Diverse Radio for Minnesota Communities, an umbrella group for independent, public, educational and tribal radio stations in Minnesota.
