Prairie Public Radio: Walking the Old Road

The story of a once vibrant, now vanished off-reservation Ojibwe village—and a vital chapter of the history of the North Shore

Mark Watne is president of the North Dakota Farmers Union. He recently sat down with Prairie Pulse Host John Harris to talk about the challenging times farmers are facing. ~~~ As specialized skills like data-focused farming gain traction among young farmers, some ag education programs want to make higher education more accessible by banding together. Harvest Public Media’s Christina Stella has more. ~~~ Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay titled “Song of the Open Road.” ~~~ We visit with Staci Lola Drouillard, author of “Walking the Old Road.” It’s the story of a once vibrant, now vanished Ojibwe village, and a vital chapter of the history of the North Shore.
