Learning from Place: Bdote brings participants to sites of great significance to Dakota people. Participants will learn from Dakota community members through stories and histories that have often been left out of our state’s history. Due to COVID-19, this offering will be modified to incorporate safe social distancing. We have reduced the usual $110 cost to reflect the changes.
The Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) is not standing still in the wake of Coronavirus. We are creating new opportunities for Minnesotans and administering a federal $500,000 CARES Act grant to cultural institutions affected by Covid-19.
The Bdote Memory Map began as a part of the “City Indians” multi-media installation at Ancient Traders Gallery on Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis in 2005. This resource provides better understanding about the Dakota people’s relationship to Minnesota. Educator materials are included.View Website
