Join Native News Online Publisher Levi Rickert tomorrow on Native Bidaské as he interviews Monte Fronk, a tribal citizen of the Red Lake Nation, on his compelling and, at times, tearful testimony. 
May 26, 2021, he said, was the worst day of his life. It was the day he was informed his daughter, Nada, 24, had been murdered.

Monte "Awan" Fronk is a 35-year Tribal Public Safety responder and spent his entire career for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, one of the 11 federally recognized in Minnesota. During his career, his duties of Tribal Emergency Management broadened into Tribal Community Risk Reduction by implementing culturally competent services and programs to serve all the Tribal Districts and Urban Area of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe.
