The Beyond Land Acknowledgment (BLA) Team invites you on a field trip on Wednesday, August 9 at 9:30 a.m. We’ll be traveling to Shakopee Hoçokata ti, the Mdewakanton Dakota Community Center. A public exhibit there provides visitors with an Indigenous cultural experience that enhances their knowledge and understanding of the Mdewakanton past and present.

Carpooling from the church will leave at 9:30 a.m. for the 45-minute drive to Shakopee. The exhibit is indoors, is easy walking, good for all ages, and perfect in hot or wet weather. Admission fees range from $5-8 depending on age.

If you’re interested in joining us on this important trip, please contact Margit Johnson at We look forward to listening and learning with you! Click here and scroll to Beyond Land Acknowledgement for more information.
