The Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund receives 19.75 percent of the sales tax revenue resulting from the Legacy amendment to support arts, arts education, and arts access, and to preserve Minnesota’s history and cultural heritage. Based on current sales tax revenue, Minnesotans will invest more than $1.2 billion in arts and cultural heritage fund projects and programs over the 25-year life of the tax. Up to this point, KBFT’s mission has been a simple one: Get up and running, develop a relevant programming format focused on our listener’s interests while keeping them entertained by featuring inspirational contemporary Native musicians, National, and Regional Native news, and Traditional music styles. KBFT’s focus moving forward will be on sharing Bois Forte Lifestyle, Arts, Heritage, Knowledge, and Perspective with our Minnesota neighbors. Through Minnesota Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage Funding KBFT will build an informed community that is richer in appreciation for the Arts, Heritage, and deep Cultural roots that make Minnesota a great place to live, work and vacation.
