Minnesota Waters: Cultural Significance through Storytelling and Art

Join artist Julie Boada of the Fond du Lac people and park ranger Linda Hansen who together inspire new ways of knowing the history and ecology of our most precious freshwater resource, Lake Superior. Through storytelling and collage, Julie and Linda help participants unlock memories, relationships, and hidden histories that have shaped their own personal experiences in and near Minnesota waters. Registration required. Open to teens and adults.

This event is part of We Are Water MN, a traveling exhibit and community engagement initiative that explores the science, history, story, culture, and relationships of water in Minnesota, and, in this case, the lower St. Croix River Valley. The exhibit will be on view at Stillwater Public Library from October 12 through December 3, 2023. We Are Water MN is led by the Minnesota Humanities Center in partnership with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency; Board of Water and Soil Resources; the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources; the Minnesota Historical Society; and the University of Minnesota Extension. We Are Water MN is funded in part with money from the Clean Water, Land, & Legacy Fund and by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
