Minnesota’s first German-language newspaper, the Minnesota Deutsche Zeitung, is published in St. Paul by editors Friedrich Orthwein and Albert Wolff. It is the second non-English newspaper in Minnesota, the first being Dakota Tawaxitu Kin (Dakota Friend), published in English and Dakota by missionary Gideon H. Pond from 1850 to 1852.

Thanks to Carver Scott Educational Cooperative-students in the Stepping Stones and Ascent Programs for the research on November’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
