Minnesota Sacred Sites Tour

April 22 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Saturday, April 22
10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Cost: $30 per person

The Sacred Sites Tour offers an opportunity for adults and older youth to learn about Minnesota history from a Native perspective through story-telling and experiencing the sites in silence, meditation, and reflection. The tour is led by Rev. Jim Bear Jacobs. Sites visited are around the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers, which the Dakota refer to as Bdote, or “meeting place of rivers.” These include Fort Snelling State Park, Dakota Internment Camp following the Dakota-U.S. War, and Pilot Knob Hill – a traditional burial ground.

The tour meets at Church of St. Peter (1405 Sibley Memorial Highway, St Paul, map) Attendees will follow each other to the sites (using personal transportation). Lunch is not provided, so feel free to bring drinks and snacks. The $30 cost includes everything but a $7 daily admission fee per vehicle at Fort Snelling (waived if you show proof of annual state park pass). All physical abilities are invited (wheelchair accessible) as sites are on or near trails. Logistical information will be provided to those registered as the event date nears. The Sacred Site Tour is a collaboration between Shepherd of the Valley, Prince of Peace, and Shepherd of the Lake.
