Bois Forte opening urban office

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A northern Minnesota Chippewa band is planning a celebration this week to mark the opening of its new urban office in Minneapolis.

Chariman Kevin Leecy of the Bois Forte band said the office will give those members who live in the urban area better access to programs and services and a stronger voice in tribal government.

Plans call for the office to offer health care and social services and emergency assistance when needed, while also acting as a clearinghouse for information on housing, education and employment opportunities.
