Shirod at the Tears of Duk'Wibahl: Exploration of Customary and Contemporary Indigenous Arts at Evergreen State College
Shirod grew up canoeing, crabbing, clamming, and fishing the waters of the South Slough in Coos Bay, Oregon, where his tribe's old village used to be. This is where his grandmother (and other Coos Indians) had their Indian allotments and where the bones of his great grandmother (and a few others) are still located. Though he has since relocated to Portland, he continues to paddle tribal canoes with his immediate family, as well as his canoe families throughout Oregon, saying, "It helps bring our tribal communities together and recognize old ancestral kinship ties."

Oprah Winfrey stopped by St. Paul, Minnesota, for her “2020 Vision: Your Life In Focus” tour. Winfrey is joining local workout groups at each stop as part of her tour, and her latest stop was with the KwePack, an incredible running group of Native American women based on the Fond du Lac Reservation near Duluth, which was started by Inspired Natives Collaborator Sarah Agaton Howes (Anishinaabe). Watch as Sarah made her wildest dreams come true by wrapping Oprah in an Eighth Generation blanket that she designed!
