Both Tribal / Membership Meetings cancelled for Monday Jan 28, 2019 due to very cold weather and 5 – 8 inches of snow. Next membership meeting Sunday Feb 24, from 12:30 to 3:00. Potluck. Please bring any pictures or stories about your family living in Mendota if you think we don’t already have them? I have come across many stories that have been told. We still need more. If any of your information has changed please call the office to update. Very important that your membership is current. Your Tribal Council Sharon, John, Marlene, Perry, and Lon.
Hot off the presses, and perhaps a bit late, here’s the 2018 Winter edition Mendota Dakota Tribal Community Newsletter.

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.
