Shared Vision thanks businesses

On behalf of the volunteers on the Shared Vision committee, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Bemidji business community!

We asked you to consider adding some welcoming words in Ojibwe to your storefronts and we were overwhelmed with your response.

We were hoping that at least 20 businesses would agree to add signage, but so far the total is 110! Not only that, but some of you got creative and added Ojibwe words all over your stores.

Thank you for taking on the idea with such gusto, and moving us toward our mission of embracing cultural understanding and respect between the Indian and non Indian community.

Shared Vision has many other projects in the works and we anticipate your ongoing support.

Together we are working toward expanding opportunities for people of all races.

Thank you, Bemidji! Miigwech!
