Community in Minnesota produces Ojibwe Olympic athletes





A small town near the Red Lake Nation in northern Minnesota has produced eight Olympic athletes, including two Ojibwe stars.

T. J. Oshie will be playing for the U.S. Men's hockey team at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi. He's following in the footsteps of his cousin, Henry Boucha, who won a silver medal at the 1972 Olympics.

Oshie and Boucha started their hockey careers in Warroad, a town north of the reservation.
