Short stories giving glimpses into the experiences of 29 deaf Minnesotans were recorded by Doug Bowen-Bailey of Digiterp Communications and produced on DVD as a benefit for the Minnesota Association of Deaf Citizens (MADC) and the Minnesota Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (MRID).
MADC and MRID generously contributed the Signs of Minnesota interview materials to MNCDHH so that they could be incorporated into this important oral-visual history video collection for archiving at the Minnesota Historical Society.
The interviewees include:
Doug Bahl, Leo Bond, Roger Brown, Mike Cashman, Toni Dalbec, Lynn Eccles, Denise Egbert, Connie Erickson, Toni Fairbanks, Jerry Geist, Betty Hastings, Daniel Hepokoski, Jonie Langdon, Marian Lucas, Krista McKenzie, David Moberg, Bud Norton, Andrew Oehrlein, Debbie Peterson, Sherri Rademacher, Kim Sackett, Susan Siemsen, Randy Shank, Trudy Suggs, Diane Suhr, Gary Suhr, Elee Vang, Kim Wassenaar, and Alex Zeibot.
Originally produced by Digiterp Communications for MADC and MRID, and remastered by ZenMation for the Commission of Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing Minnesotans (MNCDHH).
