Update about POW WOW, Online Zoom Classes, Donations, Keeping Our Culture Alive

Please help the Mendota Community get our classes back again. We are currently having a small class on zoom with Chris Mato Nunpa.

Please help the Mendota Community get our classes back again.

2020 was a bad year for everyone, and the Mendota community was hit very hard.

It is so very important to keep our traditions alive forever including our language and culture.

Please consider donating to help. $10, $50, $100, any amount will help so much and all of your donations are tax deductible. You can request that your donation goes specifically to language, cultures, regalia classes, pow wow or let us know if there is something important to you with your donation.

You can donate once, or monthly. Anyone making monthly donating will be honored at our pow wow. We are hoping to have our POW WOW on Sept 10-11-21.

We also have beading classes. Please let us know if you’re interested.

Help with operation would be greatly appreciated to keep our doors open.

With sure determination, passion, and love we have kept our door open barely for 26 years.

A community center would be nice for our people, we have a tiny office that we rent in Mendota MN.

Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Tribal Community is a small native community struggling every day to keep our doors open. www.mendotadakota.com  651 452-4141. Please send checks to
