Attention to all Tribes. I welcome you with a handshake and a good heart. Since we are all related, I’m asking for your help. Many of the Dakota tribes are not helping the Mendota Community WHY. How can we change that?  As we proud Dakota and Ojibwe, Fox and others nations of people. We should be helping each other. Mendota tribal council and others are volunteers no one get paid, but one person. The Mendota Mdewakanton Tribal Community is asking for your help to get us a community center. Our current office has mold again. I will be 75 on Aug 28, I pray this happens by my birthday or this year. We need to move. The owner will be selling the building at some point. Mendota needs their own place after struggling for 26 years now is the time. Please check out our website at ( to learn more about the Mendota Community and our members I really believed that. Mendota is our ancestral homeland. We are direct descendants we are in Minnesota. The LeClaires can show 10 generations to Chief Cetanwakanmani, also to Chief Wabasha.
