Sacred Sites Tour

Saturday, September, 30, 2017, 10 am 2 pm Meet at Church of St. Peter, 1405 Sibley Memorial Hwy, St. Paul, MN 55120

Sacred Sites
We visit sites located around confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers, what the Dakota refer to as Bdote, or “meeting place of rivers,” including:

  • Fort Snelling State Park
  • Dakota Internment Camp following the The Dakota-U.S. War
  • Pilot Knob Hill, a traditional burial ground

The Tour
Tours are led by Jim Bear Jacobs (Mohican) and Bob Klanderud (Dakota). 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. Over the past two years, more than 500 participants have taken the tour.
