Event Details

On May 4th of 1863, Dakhóta people who had been imprisoned at a concentration camp below Akíčhita Čhúŋkaške (Fort Snelling) at Bdóte were taken by steamboat and exiled from Mnísota Makhóčhe. To mark our return & assert our continued presence on this sacred land where the two rivers meet, we invite all Očhéthi Šakówiŋ Oyáte to return home, unify in peace, and share community knowledge, teachings, and stories with one another.

This event will begin with prayer, include three days of hands on cultural workshops, teachings and presentations from various members of our communities, and culminate in a fourth day of prayer.
