Ojibwa/Anishnabe quiltmaker Judy Toppings of the White Earth Reservation, Waubun, Minnesota, selected and transferred onto fabric articles from the Indian Country News for this pictorial history quilt, entitled "News from Native Country". She hopes the quilt will make people aware of the struggles and notable achievements of Native peoples.
