“Our Home: Native Minnesota” Exhibit to Open December 2nd
When I think of the Native American Community, I quite often think about how they strive to maintain their heritage, their family traditions; their love for the land and wanting to maintain a lifestyle of preservation of the world we live in.
EXHIBIT COMING SOON
"Our Home: Native Minnesota" is a new exhibit that will be opening December 7th at the Minnesota History Center at 345 Kellogg Blvd., W. in St. Paul. The exhibit will be open from 10 am to 8 pm. (Admission is FREE on Tuesdays from 3-8-pm).
The exhibit will feature historic and contemporary photos, maps and artifacts to show life of the Dakota and Ojibwe people. It also attempts to reflect relationships throughout history as s well as their long held connections to the land.
The exhibit is told in first person to demonstrate to visitors that Native people are connected to their past and are still here in Minnesota today.
