Red Lake Nation News, March 4, 2022

4-Directions Development, as one of their services under their Arts Initiative, informs local artists about resources such as Region 2 Arts Council, and assists them with applying for art grants.

On January 12, 2022, the Region 2 Anishinaabe Arts Initiative Council awarded a total of $7,703 through the Anishinaabe Arts Initiative Grant program to support Indigenous artists across the 9-county service area.

Four of the nine awardees were Red Lake community members:

Jerilyn Graves of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians was awarded $800 to promote her love for beadwork and establish her market to businesses that would like quantity and quality items.

Flora Jones of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians was awarded $1000 to further her sewing with, and teaching of, Star Quilts with younger people.

Nancy Kingbird of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians was awarded $990 to assist with supplies and equipment needed to work with local Native Women in creating culturally-based art projects to instill the depth of who we are as Anishinaabe people.

Clem May of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians was awarded $1000 to purchase materials to keep making art and further his drawing and painting.

Congratulations!  We look forward to seeing your creations and activities.
