All are welcome to the
3rd annual Dakhóta Omníčiye
May 3rd-4th, 2019
This year’s Dakhóta Gathering will be about thokátakiya máni pi (keep moving forward).
On May 4th of 1863, Dakhóta people who had been imprisoned at a concentration camp below Fort Snelling at Bdóte were taken by steamboat and exiled from Mnísota Makhóčhe. To mark our return & assert our continued presence on this sacred land where the rivers meet, we invite all Očhéthi Šakówiŋ Oyáte to return home, unify in peace, and share community knowledge, teachings, and stories with one another.
