"Young people on the Red Lake Indian Reservation will soon have new places to exercise and hangout with friends. The Red Lake Nation this week received a $750,000 community development grant from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community south of the Twin Cities.
Red Lake will use the money for youth projects, including construction of a skateboard park and basketball court, as well as amenities for the Ponemah Community Center.
Red Lake Tribal Chairman Floyd "Buck" Jourdain says the tribe's goal is to provide a safe environment for youth and to develop their interest in outdoor sports."
