Owámniyomni Site Visit Saturday, September 9, 1:30-3:30 pm

submitted by gilmerje@augsburg.edu

Join Dakota tribal members from each of the four Dakota tribes in Mnisota on Saturday, September 9 for a visit to Owámniyomni (St. Anthony Falls) and Wíta Wanáǧi (Spirit Island) in Minneapolis. These sacred places have been heavily altered, but the lock at the Falls is now closed to commercial boat traffic, and there is an opportunity to reconnect with the river and restore this place in meaningful ways.

The non-profit Friends of the Falls is engaging with Dakota tribal nations about what could happen here in the future. The visit will include a presentation by Shelley Buck, president of Friends of the Falls and vice-president of Prairie Island Indian Community, as well as a short walking tour of the area. Food & drink provided.
