A celebration Saturday brought Duluth's indigenous community together to celebrate bedaabin binaadiizii: new beginnings.

The New Beginnings Community Celebration was put on by Community Action Duluth, Idle No More Duluth and numerous organizations that serve the greater area's indigenous community. The event involved a meal, music and dancing, and the sharing of stories from community members.

One of those community members was Orville White, Jr. He said he has gone through a lot of changes in the past year, and he expects big things in the next one.

"There's a lot that changed in my life in this last year," he said. "Just trying to do the right things for my babies so I can get them back and see my kids again ... just try to do bigger and better things with my life, because I know I'm capable of it."
