More Vikings in Minnesota!

After nearly a decade of coordinating the Midwest Viking Festival, coordinator Tim Jorgensen started getting phone calls from other organizations looking for a Viking presence at their events. There were plenty of Vikings willing to participate, but what would they be called? The name, “River Ravens” is both an homage to our roots in the Red River Valley of North Dakota and Minnesota, but also Odin’s ravens which represented thought and memory.
