About the event

The Sacred Sites Tour offers an opportunity for adults and older youth to learn about Minnesota history from a Native perspective through story-telling and experiencing the sites in silence, meditation, and reflection. The tour is led by Rev. Jim Bear Jacobs. Sites visited are around the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers, which the Dakota refer to as Bdote, or “meeting place of rivers.” These include Fort Snelling State Park, Dakota Internment Camp following the Dakota-U.S. War, and Pilot Knob Hill – a traditional burial ground.

The tour meets at Church of St. Peter (1405 Sibley Memorial Highway, St Paul 55120). Attendees will follow each other to the sites (using personal transportation). Bring your own drinks and snacks. The $30 cost includes everything but a $7 daily admission fee per vehicle at Fort Snelling (waived if you show proof of annual state park pass). All physical abilities are invited (wheelchair accessible) as sites are on or near trails. Logistical information will be provided to those registered as the event date nears.

The Sacred Site Tour is a collaboration between Christus Victor, Prince of Peace, Shepherd of the Lake, and Shepherd of the Valley.
