    • PHOTO GALLERY: CURE River and History Weekend

    • CURE River and History Weekend 2012 The weather stayed dry making Clean Up the River Environment’s (CURE) 21st annual River and HIstory Weekend exceedingly pleasant. Dozens of youth and adults alike canoed and kayaked the Minnesota and Chippewa Rivers on Saturday where they absorbed scenic river valley’s wildlife and natural beauty. After the paddle, roughly 50 individuals turned out at Wegdahl Park where they listened to Teresa Peterson, Executive Director of Dakota Wicohan, speak about her non-profit organization’s efforts to renew the Dakota language and preserve the ancestral way of life. As night fell event-goers gathered around a campfire where they told stories and sang songs, and later many camped out.
