Welcome to the Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Tribal Community.

We are a nonprofit 501C3 organization dedicated to protecting important and sacred sites and bringing Dakota Oyate (nation) culture back to its birthplace in Minnesota. Donations Go To:
  • Protect and preserve sites sacred to the Dakota Nation around the confluence of the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers, located in the Twin Cities area.
  • Revitalize Dakota culture and the use of the Dakota language in its place of origin.
  • Promote better understanding between non-natives and the Dakota People by providing accurate information about Dakota history in Minnesota.
  • Offering opportunities for all to learn about Dakota culture.
  • Establish a home base for the descendants of the Dakota people who lived in the Mendota area and were never granted the U.S. tribal status promised to them.
