Public historian Kate Beane, her twin sister Carly Bad Heart Bull, and their father Syd Beane played a central role in restoring the name Bde Maka Ska (White Earth Lake) to Lake Calhoun. They and others who supported this work spent years to restore the name, and they met resistance from some sectors of the community. They persevered and eventually succeeded.
Kate Beane gave a TED Talk in Minneapolis in May titled: The Lasting Legacy of Place Names, in which she describes why this work was so important to her, her family and future generations.
