Ojibwe prophecy foretells a crossroads. At this point, humans can choose to turn away from a path of environmental degradation and toward one of stewardship of the earth and each other. If we choose the path of stewardship, the earth heals and all groups of people prosper together. A group of Northeast Minnesotans hopes a Great Lakes Cultural Interpretive Center would help us choose the latter.

For the past several years, Central RSDP has undertaken an intentional effort to grow the diversity and inclusivity of the board and community partners engaged in the work. These efforts have resulted in projects with Somali, Latino and tribal communities, including projects undertaken in a bilingual context. It’s work that continues to hold lessons for a board and staff eager to embrace them.
