The Timberwolves have teamed up with Treasure Island Resort & Casino and the Prairie Island Indian Community to bring awareness to the Bdewakantunwan Dakota Tribal Nation and its rich heritage, traditions and culture. Through a four-part educational content series, we will show how the Prairie Island Indian Community is proud of its heritage, preserves its traditions, protects its land and environment, and keeps the spirit alive for the next seven generations.
Part 1: The Prairie Island Community’s Tribal historic preservations office works tirelessly to protect and preserve places of cultural significance that are important to the Bdewakantunwan Dakota Tribal Nation. The He Mni Can restoration project in Red Wing is one example of the work that is vital to restoring and protecting the heritage of the Prairie Island Indian Community Dakota oyate (people).
