Sacred Sites Tour

Sun June 4, 2023 at 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This is a unique opportunity to learn about the Native American heritage in our community. You will be grateful if you take advantage of this!

Everyone is welcome to join us for this off-site tour as we learn about Minnesota history from a Native perspective through story-telling and touring selected sites.

As part of Healing Minnesota Stories’ effort to create dialogue, understanding and healing between Native and non-Native peoples, we offer Sacred Site Tours of the Twin Cities area. These tours aim to create greater awareness and understanding of the Dakota people, the original people of this area, who too often are invisible in their homeland. The tour includes information on Dakota history, culture and sacred sites, as well as the oppression and genocide they faced, and ultimately their exile. As the topics are quite serious the tours are considered age appropriate for high-school age or older.

Tours are led by Jim Bear Jacobs (Mohican). The tours offer an opportunity to learn about Minnesota history from a Native perspective through story-telling and experiencing the sites in silence/meditation/reflection.

This tour is free, but we are recommending a donation of $18.  There are a limited number of available spots, so we are requiring RSVPs by sending an email to Peggy Kipp.

Sponsored by Mount Zion Temple, The Women of Mount Zion Temple, and Brotherhood. Everyone is welcome!
