Yes, absolutely... but just to clarify, do you mean Dakota or Ojibwe? The latter has been a little tricky for me, so I guess that means back to Norway.
So, you don't own any land, correct? Don't own a home? Rent an apartment?
Because that really is property of the Dakota or Ojibwe, squatter.

Really Sophie? My German-speaking great grandfather learned English in school in central Minnesota. His parents didn't know a lick of English and though he learned quick, it was indeed in school where he learned English. Not an ESL class, mind you, but good old fashioned immersion. I don't know that I think that it's necessarily right, to spend the time needed to teach immigrants English in the classroom, but let's make sure we're getting our facts straight. Immigrant children learning English in our public schools is nothing new.

Lino Lakes, if anything, is dumb for taking this on. It doesn't make the town look good and from the sound of it, there's really no reason to do it.
