Rediscovering the Mississippi River
Produced by Flor Trevino & Peter Frey

The Mississippi River was dubbed “messippi” by the Ojibwe Indians of Northern Minnesota. The fourth largest river in the world, its headwaters begin at Itasca State Park and flow into the Gulf of Mexico from Louisiana. Covering more than 2,000 miles in 31 states, the Mississippi has been the creative inspiration for American legend and folklore, including Mark Twain’s “Huck Finn.” In this documentary, producers Flor Trevino and Peter Frey explore how young people are rediscovering this majestic landmark. With original music by the Okee Dokee Brothers, this project is part of the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
