A drum and dance competition is a big part of the Native American Week
In 2006, White Earth Tribal Chairman Erma Vizenor opened the ceremonies by explaining that “the drum is very much a part of us. It is the heartbeat of our people. It calls ancestors and us together as one heartbeat.”
Detroit Lakes High School will be celebrating the annual Native American Week next week, March 25-29. There is no school on Monday.
