Two women arrested at Mall of America for Indian dance attempt

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Two Duluth women were arrested at the Mall of America in Bloomington on New Year’s Eve while trying to stage an American Indian round dance at the mall.

The women – Patricia Shepard and Reyna Crow – are part of the Indian rights group Idle No More, which has conducted events to protest state wolf hunts and mining projects.
