Laura Youngbird is an artist and art educator.  The themes in her work originate from experiences her family and particularly her grandmother had while at boarding schools and issues that surrounded their assimilation into non-Indian culture.  Here is a profile of Breckenridge, Minnesota artist Laura Youngbird.

About the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund

In 2008, Minnesota voters passed a landmark piece of legislation — the Minnesota Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment — which provided funding to public television stations serving audiences in Minnesota. Its mission is to help preserve and document the treasures of culture, history, and heritage that make Minnesota special, and to increase access to the natural and cultural resources we all share.
