As part of Healing Minnesota Stories’ effort to create dialogue, understanding and healing between Native and non-Native peoples, we gather to immerse ourselves in Minnesota history from a Native perspective as we experience Dakota history, culture and sacred sites through storytelling and are present to one another through silence/meditation/reflection and sharing.
Our time together aims to create greater awareness and understanding of the Dakota people, the original people of this area, who too often are invisible in their homeland.
Limited to 15 participants. Must register before event. Dress for an extended walk on uneven terrain. Because of COVID safety, participants drive themselves from site to site. An itinerary will be provided.
A member of the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican Nation of central Wisconsin, Jim Bear Jacobs is a cultural facilitator who works to raise the public’s awareness of American Indian causes and injustices, and founder/director of Healing Minnesota Stories, a group dedicated to creating events of dialogue and education between Native communities and interfaith organizations.
