Local Opportunities to Celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day

In MS Chapel on Friday, October 8, 2021, Indigenous identifying students shared the following opportunities to engage and celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day.

Owamni Falling Water Festival
 
Saturday, October 9 from 1:00 – 5:00 PM at Father Hennepin Bluff Park and at the NEW Water Works Park. This will be a celebration of indigenous Minnesota cultures.  Owámni is what the Dakota called the area at St. Anthony Falls.  It means, “whirling or falling water” in the Dakota language, making it an appropriate name for this festival along the Mississippi River.

Wakaŋ Tipi Center Celebration
 
Monday, October 11 from 4:00 - 6:00 PM at Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary. This event will celebrate the first phase of the construction of the Wakaŋ Tipi Center. The event will begin with Dakota song and dance exhibitions followed by oration from organizational leadership and elected officials who have worked on this project to build a nature center at this sacred site.
