The Sacred Sites Tour with Healing Minnesota Stories and St. Paul Interfaith Network centers around the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers, what the Dakota refer to as Bdote, or "meeting place of rivers." 

The tour will meet and begin at Church of St. Peter, Mendota. Tour stops include Fort Snelling, the site of the Dakota internment camp following the Dakota-U.S. War; and Pilot Knob Hill, a traditional burial ground.

The tour will be led by Jim Bear Jacobs (Mohican) and Bob Klanderud (Dakota/Lakota). The tour offers an opportunity to learn about Minnesota history from a Native perspective through storytelling. Come prepared for the weather (rain or shine), and bring your own snacks. 

Cost: A suggested donation of $20-40 can be made the day of the tour or on St. Paul Interfaith Network's website. Donations support Healing Minnesota Stories programs and events.

Register: Send names and email addresses to info@spinterfaith.org. Space is limited to 40 people.​
