We encourage everyone to attend this free event and show support to the many organizations and individuals who have been working toward a more connected community.

Shared Vision, a grassroots project that has been out front in recognizing and celebrating diversity in the Bemidji area, has partnered with several other organizations to put on today's event. They are the Indigenous Environmental Network, Bemidji State University Outdoor Program Center, Peacemaker Resources, Bemidji Area Race Relations Council, SHIP Maawanjii'idwiwag Project and Dirty Goose Recording Studio.

Among the activities are intergenerational games, lacrosse, canoeing, MinnAqua fishing/aquatics education, information booths, meals, music and a farmers market. Food will be provided by the American Indian Resource Center.

"Celebrating who we are together" is the theme for the event. It's time to do just that.
