A Minnesota-filmed movie focusing on Native American culture and starring people from this area is gearing up for its North Dakota premier in Fargo. On Nov. 13, "The Jingle Dress" will show at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. in the Fargo Theatre.
In October, the museum received a letter of thanks from G. Wylie Sypher for help he had received from the museum staff 18 years ago. Sypher of Putnam Valley, N.Y., is the great-grandson of George H.
