Join us with Healing Place Collaborative and Dakhóta Iápi Okhódakičhiye, who will share their Dakota Čhokáta Nážiŋ and Mniówe. Co-sponsored by Lower Phalen Creek Project and East Side Freedom Library. Space is limited, please register to save a spot.
Čhokáta Nážiŋ is a living and traveling gathering space for the Dakota language to be restrengthened through a deeper understanding of the interdependent relationships of the land, language and lifeways to the health and wellbeing of people that call Mnísota Makhóčhe (Minnesota) home.
Mniówe is a place for getting water and is the indigenized rendition of the esteemed "Water Bar." Learn about indigenous philosophies, relationships and practices relating to Mní (water) that have allowed Dakota people to thrive in this area for millennia. Sample water from a variety of sources in Mnísota ; and engage in conversations about the ways in which we use and interact with water in our daily lives; often without thinking about where our water comes from.
