Remembering, Preserving, and Preparing: Minnesota’s Indigenous Communities at 150 Years of Statehood

Conferences will consider the impact of statehood on the Dakota and Ojibwe peoples and the contributions of native people to Minnesota and American history, targeted grants will help develop reference and curriculum guides for native language courses, and a content-rich website will collect Dakota and Ojibwe materials and resources.

In 2008, the Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) will examine the significance of Minnesota’s Sesquicentennial by considering how Minnesota and American history was and is influenced by interactions between peoples. MHC's project will highlight the historic and cultural contributions of the Dakota and Ojibwe to Minnesota and American history. It includes a wide variety of programming formats to reach a broad audience: public programming; resource development; and a theme-based re-grant program.
