Bdote, a sacred Dakota site at the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers and the location of Fort Snelling, where 1,700 Dakota people were imprisoned before their forced removal from their homelands.
St. Cloud State University professor Iyekiyapiwiƞ Darlene St. Clair will lead our group on the site, delivering a talk along the way and creating an experience that we can all relate to.
Darlene says about this tour: "We are living, learning, and working in a particular place with a long, fascinating, troubling, and frequently unknown story. One goal for this tour is that participants begin to experience the place we live in as Mnisota Makoce, the Dakota Homelands. We will be visiting a Dakota sacred site located in an area that would later be called the Twin Cities."
We will email to confirm your spot and meet-up details.
Please note, registration is limited to 20 participants.
