Rsoeau County Historical Society 90th Annual Meeting
“It’s not about Indians, it’s about People… The overall philosophy is to reconnect all people to nature and inevitably to themselves.” ~Larry Stillday

Roseau County Historical Society’s 90th Annual Meeting features Michael Meuers, author of Road to Ponemah: The Teachings of Larry Stillday. The meeting is April 6, 2017, at the Roseau City Center. Starting at 5:45 pm a brief meeting, 6 pm a catered dinner served by Shirley Flick of Warroad.  Dinner includes chicken wild rice hotdish, fresh fry bread, and blueberry dessert. Cost $7/plate RCHS members, $10/plate non-members, and $5 children 12 and under.

Guest speaker, Michael Meuers, author of Road to Ponemah: The Teachings of Larry Stillday will take the floor at 7 pm.  Meuers will speak of the “Ojibwe World View” as taught to him by a great teacher, healer, and medicine person, Larry Stillday, and help the audience learn more of America’s Indigenous peoples, history, culture and…world view.

Stillday, a well-known spiritual leader, healer, and teacher from Red Lake Nation touched many Ojibwe people in northern Minnesota. His words and teachings not only impacted the Native population but people from all walks of life.

Meuers has worked in public relations for the Red Lake Bank of Chippewa Indians for more than twenty years, and during this time he spearheaded the Ojibwe Language project in Bemidji, MN, which was recently recognized by National Geographic for: “…support in sustaining and enhancing the unique geographic character fo the region…”

Testimonial from readers:

“Your writings are informative and passionate about the subject matter. For as much myth, rumor, and speculation as there is in the White community about Indian spirituality, I think your testament has the opportunity to help educate folks who are interested in knowing their neighbors better.” ~Ryan Zemek, Headwaters Regional Development Commission (HRDC)

“Wow! Looking at it from an outside perspective really captivates the beauty of it all!” ~Nate Taylor, Teacher, Ojibwe Language Immersion, Member, Red Lake Nation
