Mniówe (Dakota Water Bar) at Minnesota Water Resources Conference

We're partnering with Dakhóta Iápi Okhódakičhiye (Dakota Language Society) and Healing Place Collaborative to bring this indigenized version of Water Bar to the Minnesota Water Resources Conference. Visitors at this technical conference will learn about indigenous philosophies, relationships, and practices relating to Mní (water) that have allowed Dakota people to thrive in this area for millennia, sampling water from a variety of sources in Mnísota; and engaging in conversations about the ways in which we use and interact with water in our daily lives; often without thinking about where our water comes from.
