Cultural Healing Video and Discussion

The indigenous people to this land have experienced undoubtedly some of the largest amounts of historical and intergenerational trauma, but through their resilience, they are demonstrating their need and want for cultural healing. 

Join Lower Phalen Creek project at the East Side Freedom Library for an event that will showcase a 5-6 minute video on cultural healing. The video, produced by John Kaul, will explore the need for cultural healing and what forms it takes not only for the indigenous people of this area, but other ostracized communities like Hmong, Cambodian, African American, and Somali.

After the video is presented there will be a discussion and panel of speakers. Free to attend, but limited capacity - register here to reserve your spot.

Phalen Creek Nibi Walk

Join Lower Phalen Creek Project and the Minnesota Humanities Center and its "We Are Water MN” with partners, the University of Minnesota's Institute on the Environment and the River Life Program, in learning more from Phalen Creek.

The walk begins at the headwaters, Lake Phalen, and will wind through East Saint Paul and Lowertown to the mouth of the creek, at the Mississippi River. 

This free event has two parts: on Oct. 6, walkers learn about Dakota history of the creek, ecological impacts of and to the creek, and Nibi Walk protocols; on Oct. 27 is the actual walk, followed immediately by lunch and a reflection activity.

*Participants must attend both Oct. 6 and Oct. 27.
