Ramona Kitto Stately, a member of the Sentee Sioux Nation, will share the rich history of the Dakota people and invites people to see this place we call “Minnesota” from an indigenous point of view. Bdote is a Dakota word that means “where the two waters come together.” The event will convene at Bdote Fort Snelling, where the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers converge. Long before this area became a military fort, Dakota tribes lived here and today they continue to regard it as their spiritual and cultural point of origin. Cost is $20.This program is also a fundraiser and all proceeds from the evening will be given to support Sharon Day and her fellow Nibi walkers as they walk the Missouri River from its headwaters in Montana to its confluence with the Mississippi River in St. Louis.
