The Circle of Indigenous Nations is pleased to announce the Dakota Sacred Sites Fall Bus Tour. Please see the quote from the tour leader and use the link to register.

"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 several Dakota sacred sites located in an area that would later be called the Twin Cities.

How has colonization impacted Dakota use and access to these places?

How have Dakota people asserted a continuing relationship with these places?

This tour will provide participants with a more nuanced and complicated understanding of the place we call home."
