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.
This is a Official Notice: Hello dear members at our last membership meeting on Nov 27th we voted to up our contributions from $15.00 a month to $20.00 a month. Starting Jan 5th, 2018.
Hello dear members at our last membership meeting on Nov 27th we voted to up our contributions from $15.00 a month to $20.00 a month. We have never raised the contributions in 21 years. That’s $5.00 a week to help support your community. Now we want your vote and see how you feel about the contributions. You can only vote if you are current with your contributions. Please hi reply with your vote yes or no. The $20.00 will began on 1-5-2018. Only 4 members voted no, the rest said yes. So contribution will go up on Jan 5th, 2018. Sharon or Marlene will call all the members on ACH now and tell them of the price change. Most of them already said yes anyhow. Those of you who said no, need to call the office to talk about the contributions. Your tribal council is always working hard for you. Remember your contribution are tax deductible.
Thank You, Pidamaya ye
Your Tribal Council
