Story Awakening at Bde Maka Ska
August 15 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Join us as a Dakota historian speaks on the Dakota cultural perspective/name restoration of Bde Maka Ska, including the new public art installation (completion date, late summer). The Minneapolis City public arts project at Bde Maka Ska celebrates the history of Heyata Otunwe, a village at Bde Maka Ska/Lake Calhoun (1829-1839) and honors Mahpiya Wicasta/Cloud Man. The art work honors and educates visitors about the history and culture of the Dakota and other Indigenous peoples who frequented and resided in this area over time. This long-awaited recognition has been a community effort. Join us to learn more.
