Minnesota 'Land Back'

Ruth-Ann travels to the metropolitan area of Minneapolis-Saint Paul to explore the rich culture of the modern Native American people. She begins her voyage at a Native American center and immediately finds herself in chef Brian Yazzie's kitchen. Here, Ruth-Ann delves deep into the story of how cooking transformed Yazzie's life, while he teaches her a thing or two about culinary delights. Next, Ruth-Ann is introduced to Colin Monette, a blues guitarist who proudly follows his Native American people's tradition of the powwow drum. She listens intently as he relates how he reconnects with his culture. Ruth-Ann has the opportunity to make a stop at Daytons, one of the oldest luxury department stores. From a time when Natives were not welcomed, the Native roots trading post and its curator Robert Pilot have implemented a 'LandBack' initiative to recognize the works of featured modern indigenous artists Misko Chapman, Kent Estey, and Joseph Allen. Join Ruth-Ann on her final stop to Owamni, the popular restaurant owned by three-time James Beard award-winning chef Sean Sherman. Here she discovers the exquisitely crafted dishes, all inspired by the pre colonial Sioux culture.

Minnesota 'Meet The Creators'

Ruth-Ann heads to the lower Sioux Indian reservation art center, where she meets with the passionate Native creators preserving their rich culture through various mediums like digital art, cooking, quiltmaking and pottery. There she discovers the land's fascinating history and why it is known by its fitting moniker, "where they paint the trees red". Returning to the city, Ruth-Ann attends the historic Starlight Fashion Show - a first of its kind opportunity to meet the talented sisterhood of Native female collaborators, such as models, hairdressers, make-up artists and fashion designers Lauren Goodday, Osamuskwasis and Delina White. Ruth-Ann then interviews the remarkable Quanna Rose Chasinghorse, making for an unforgettable night!
