Wednesday, July 21 – 7:00 PM The Crosslake Area Historical society is presenting a film “RAINBOW WOMAN – THE LEGACY OF ONE LAKOTA WOMAN’S STRENGTH that will be introduced by Dr Susan Krook from Normandale College about the life of Karen Sterner, a Lakota Indian Elder.
This film will reveal a glimpse into the life of this remarkablewoman. It is a sharing of this woman’s way of passing on the Lakota way of life to others. Dr. Krook will explain how she met Karen years ago and has been honored to learn so much from her and her family for several years. She will help us trace the life of Karen, from her childhood on the Rosebud Reservation to the boarding school experiences, to painful accounts of bullying in schools, her representation of Midwestern Indians in Washington D.C. and being with Eleanor Roosevelt, to college and eventually sharing her strength with others through teaching.
Karen shares her philosophy for living and staying strong – weathering hardships and today finding contentment with her family members. Her story is one for all of us.
The program will be held in the Learning Livery at the Historic Log Village in Crosslake on Wednesday, July 21 at 7:00 PM.
