BTN LiveBIG: Penn State grad finds his roots through photography

When Jeremy Dennis came to Happy Valley about two years ago, he was hoping to expand his horizons. Already a graduate of Stony Brook University, New York, he applied for the master of fine arts in photography program at Penn State.

Inspired by their experiences in college and elsewhere, these Pathfinders are passing by the typical, well-trod career paths and blazing their own trails. We’ll explore the unconventional approaches these Big Ten alums are taking to work. The Ojibwe tribe — the fourth-largest among the remaining Native American nations in the United States — has more than 200,000 members that reside throughout the Midwest. But only a small portion of its elders can actually speak the language of the tribe. At the University of Minnesota, assistant professor Erik Redix and his colleagues in the American Indian Studies department are on a
