Earl Nyholm

Earl Nyholm is a professor at Bemidji State University in Minnesota in the Department of American Indian Studies. He is an enrolled member of the L'Anse-Baraga band of Ojibwe in the Upper Penisula of Michigan, but spent much of his youth on the Bad River Reservation in Wisconsin, where many of his relatives still live, including two that assisted in the construction of a canoe for his film, Earl's Canoe. He is a well recognized linguist and recently co-authored a major dictionary on the Ojibwe language.
