CROSBY — Unlimited Learning will host Susan Krook, professor of anthropology at Normandale Community College, at 1:30 p.m. July 11, in the Forum Room at Crosby-Ironton High School

Krook was a driving force behind the production of the film, “Rainbow Woman: The Legacy of One Lakota Woman’s Strength.”

Krook, who has a special interest in the cultural landscape of Minnesota ancestors, will show excerpts from the film and talk about Rainbow Woman’s life and experience.

“Growing up, I was never a victim.” These are the words of Karen Knife Sterner, a Lakota Indian elder, mother, grandmother, educator, and spokesperson for human rights whose story has been memorialized in the recently completed film.

The film traces the life of Karen from her childhood on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota to her boarding school experiences, to her travels to Washington, D.C., working on a committee originally formed by Eleanor Roosevelt, and then to sharing her experiences nationally as a Native woman representing her culture. She reflects on her philosophy for living and remaining strong — weathering hardships and finding love and solace with her family and so many others.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
