"Through personal stories and vivid photographs, From Seven Rivers to Ten Thousand Lakes offers an overview of the Indian people and the conditions that have spurred immigration to Minnesota; the experiences of settling in the state and establishing a community here; the professional, political, and economic contributions of Indian Americans in Minnesota, including both permanent and visiting residents; and the pursuit and celebration of cultural and religious traditions in this, their adopted home. Profiles of prominent individuals, businesses, and organizations that form the cornerstones of the Indian American community in Minnesota round out the narrative"-- From the back cover.
