Hau mitakuyapi. We understand that troubling information is circulating on Facebook concerning our tribal community. We wish to clarify.
We support the health and safety of vulnerable people, including women and children. We do not condone the abuse or keeping captive of another person. Our Tribal Chairwoman is respectful of all people and does not speak poorly of others.
We have spiritual leaders. Joseph Bester pours the water for the inipi. Emmett Eastman is the spiritual advisor for the wacipi.
Today our Tribal Council met. Actions have been taken.
We ask the Creator to help us to always walk in a good way with a good heart and do good things for all our relations.
Please contact the Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Tribal Office if you have questions. Pidamaya.
