We will be Honoring our ancestors on Pike Island onÂ 1-31-2009.
We will light the sacred fire at 11:00 am, and the ceremony will be at 12:00 pm. Bob Brown my brother started this as a way for the Mendota people and friends to honor the people who suffered on Pike Island, during that very cold winter.
Come join us at the concentration camp at Fort Snelling State Park below the Mendota Bridge.
There will be a gathering and feast at the Mendota Dakota office. Please bring a dish to share if you can.
Please call the Mendota Dakota office if you have any questions. Sharon 651-451-4141
