On August 1st, 2017 we held our first Mawanji'idim: Coming Together Celebration. The event was an opportunity to come together as a community and build relationship through sharing a meal, visiting and spending time together with our families in a good way.
In addition to a meal, there were intergenerational activities offered in which everyone was able to offer their thoughts and ideas as to what "Coming Together" means to them. Area partners were also present so we were able to learn more about the multitude of great resources and opportunities our community has to offer.
This celebration was part of our Building the Bridge: Taking Courageous Action on Racial Reconciliation series of events in the Bemidji Area. The overall purpose of our monthly gatherings is to offer opportunities for our communities to engage in this work, build and strengthen relationships, increase knowledge base and work toward shared understanding within and among communities living and working in Bemidji and the surrounding areas.
