St. Paul – Learning from Place: Bdote

Sunday, August 9, 2020 | 8:00 am2:30 pm

Early Bird Rate: $60 | July 12-August 2: $75

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.

What to expect:

Participants will visit sites of great significance to Dakota people where they’ll learn from Dakota community members through stories and histories that have often been left out of our state’s history.

Participants will provide their own transportation to the locations: Fort Snelling State Park and Indian Mounds Park. Participants will also be responsible for their own meals/snacks/beverages. Prior to the event, participants will receive an email with helpful resources, including video introductions from the content leads and an overview of the day’s logistics.

We will not be visiting Wakan Tipi (Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary) or Pilot Knob which were included in the trip prior to COVID-19.

MHC will be using a tour guide sound system that will allow participants to hear the presenters from a safe distance.

K-12 educators will receive 6 clock hours.


8:00 a.m. – Meet at Fort Snelling State Park. If you do not have a Minnesota State Parks permit, a day pass ($7) or annual pass ($35) can be purchased online.

12:15 p.m. – Meet at Indian Mounds Park

2:30 p.m. – Program ends

Indigenous people of this place have the longest relationship to the land. Because of the nature of this program and experience, the fee is waived for indigenous participants. Contact Eden Bart at eden@mnhum.org before registering.

If cost is a barrier, please contact Jessica Rust at jessica@mnhum.org before registering.
