Hosted from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Hoċokata Ti in Shakopee, this open house will give attendees a chance to explore the new cultural center and learn more about the tribe through interactive learning stations.

•    Arts and crafts

•    Native American culture and language

•    Local history

•    Indigenous foods

•    Federal policy impact

•    Gaming history

•    And more!


With everything from a dance and drum demonstration to Native film screenings to an Indigenous food tasting, this free event is well-suited for the whole family. Attendees will also be able to visit the SMSC’s recently opened public exhibit—Mdewakanton: Dwellers of the Spirit Lake—at no cost throughout the day. Join your neighbors at the SMSC as the tribe shares a piece of its history and culture and explore areas and issues of interest to Indian Country today.
