UMD Student Featured on "Native Report"

DULUTH, MN Sophomore Brigette Lacquette, who plays defenseman for the UMD women's hockey team, will be featured on the PBS television show "Native Report." The interview will air on WDSE on Thursday, March 21 at 8:30 pm and will be rebroadcast on Saturday, March 23 at 4 pm.

Lacquette is majoring in both physical education and American Indian Studies. She hales from Mallard, Manitoba, and is a member of the Cote First Nation. She is the first Ojibwe/Anishnabe in UMD hockey history.
