Minnesota Artists

Three members of the strings section of the Minnesota Orchestra stopped by the KBXE studio in Bemidji Wednesday.

Author Kent Nerburn wrote the novel Neither Wolf Nor Dog in the early 1990s.   Director Steven Lewis Simpson made it into a movie of the same name currently in theaters.  In this segment of Area Voices, we learn why Kent began his Native American writing journey and how he views the film. We also hear from Steven Simpson about the making of the movie and the reaction it has received from the public.

The Regional Arts Council System has provided funding and support for arts projects across Minnesota for decades.  For the first time, an arts council is offering a fellowship specific to Native American Artists.
