NEWS FROM THE NINTH WARD
Celebrating the first Indigenous Peoples Day in Minneapolis. We look forward to the events occuring this year to continue marking this day of strength and resistance for the Dakota, Lakota and Anishinabee people of Minnesota.
INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY IN MINNEAPOLIS AND ST. PAUL
The Minneapolis American Indian Center in collaboration with Native American Community Development Institute, Augsburg College, the American Indian OIC and the City of Minneapolis have put together a small program for Indigenous Peoples Day.
There will be a sunrise ceremony at Lake Bde/Mde Maka Ska followed by a panel of speakers at the Minneapolis American Indian Center in South Minneapolis. The panel will address the topics of protecting wild rice, the water, and the Sandpiper oil pipeline fight in Northern Minnesota. In St. Paul, they will celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day for the first time with an event at the Crowne Plaza. The day will round out with an Indigenous Hip Hop show at Augsburg College. A full day of events to celebrate the indigenous people of this land.

GENTRIFICATION:
WHO GETS TO LIVE IN MINNEAPOLIS IN 2020?
We had an extraordinary turnout for this event. We were proud and excited to see many of our neighbors as well as residents from all over the city come together to talk about growing Minneapolis in an equitable manner. We are incredibly grateful to our panelists and facilitators Neeraj Mehta, Chaun Webster, Jessica Lopez-Lyman and Owen Duckworth. They did a fantastic job of engaging the community that joined us as well as providing a vital and timely analysis on issues of affordable housing policy, displacement, and community revitalization. We are lucky to have such amazing thinkers and assets as part of our community. 
We hope you can continue this robust conversation on the Facebook page for the event. There you will find articles and frameworks that help explain gentrification as well as provide ideas for things residents and policy makers can do to take action to prevent gentrification from happening and to address its negative impacts on low-income and people of color residents.
