#NativeRISE brings together more than 250 community and business leaders, supporters and elected officials to celebrate American Indian OIC’s impact in the community. We’ll begin the evening with a social hour, followed by a welcome, prayer, honor song and dinner. The program will highlight several soaring “eagles” among us, including invited speakers:

Cara Jade Myers, an actress currently appearing in Killers of the Flower Moon, a new film directed by Martin Scorsese (Wichita Tribe)

Peggy Flanagan, Minnesota’s Lieutenant Governor (White Earth Nation)

Eddie Chuculate, author of This Indian Kid and Cheyenne Madonna, Star Tribune copy editor (Cherokee & Muscogee Nation)

Trish Cook, local comedian and the evening’s emcee (Red Lake Nation)

Given that it’s a Friday night, we’ll close the evening with music, so wear your dancin’ shoes.
We hope you can join us!
