On September 26, the American Indian Studies Department at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) announced a new scholarship that has been established in the name of Michael Munnell, the first American Indian Studies major.

A member of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Munnell is the keeper of the drum for the MA-IIN-GAN drum group and singers. The group is highly respected and is in demand across the region, playing before thousands of people every year. They have opened many events at UMD, including the annual commencement ceremonies and a recent visit by University of Minnesota President Kaler.

The scholarship naming was part of the American Indian Studies 40th Anniversary celebration. Anniversary events will be held throughout the year, including the presentation, "Land, Law and Education: An American Indian Perspective on Land-Grant Universities," on Tuesday, October 16, at 7 pm, in the UMD Kirby Ballroom.
