On today’s podcast I have the honor of having James Lovell, director of development for the Chief Seattle Club in Seattle, WA as a guest. Not only has James been an advocate for the homeless, specifically in the Native American community, he has become a good friend. James also is a member of the Turtle Mountain Band reservation of the Chippewa nation near Belcourt, ND which is where my dad’s native side is from.
Today we discuss the Chippewa, or Ojibwe, the heritage, culture, artwork and travels of this great band of American Indians.
