This month is marked by seasonal shifts, giving thanks, and recognition of the original and ongoing stewards of this land during Native Heritage Month. Mni Sóta Maḳoce, Minnesota, is home to the Dakota and Ojibwe Peoples and 11 sovereign American Indian nations. This year has been announced as the final ride of the Dakota 38+2 Memorial Ride, marking the end of the annual journey from Lower Brule, SD to Reconciliation Park in Mankato, MN.
