Family Field Trip: Mdewakanton Sioux Community Hoċokata Ti Cultural Center
Take part in a family field trip to the Shakopee Hoċokata Ti Mdewakanton Sioux cultural center. Sit within a traditional Dakota tipi, touch the hides of animals traditionally hunted by the Dakota people, hear the words of the Dakota language, and more. We’ll receive a guided tour from staff through this immersive and interactive exhibit, which gives visitors a better understanding of Mdewakanton lifeways that can’t be experienced through books. Registration required. Bus leaves from Central Middle School.
Free busing and admission for Eden Prairie Schools families. Others are welcome to join and ride the bus, but will need to purchase their own admission tickets at the door. Pricing ranges from $0–$8. Visit the Hoċokata Ti website for details.
This event is part of PeopleFest! a community celebration of culture that honors and celebrates the range of traditions, ages, backgrounds, experiences, abilities and expressions that tell the rich story of our community.
