After signs 'rename' Lake Calhoun, Minneapolis Park Board opts for dual names

 


A half-dozen signs at Lake Calhoun got a temporary makeover with the Dakota name of Mde Maka Ska (White Earth Lake) in an unofficial overnight caper Tuesday night. Those same signs, removed Wednesday, now will get a second name.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board followed the dual-name solution proposed by Commissioner Annie Young, but with a minor change that uses the preferred modern spelling of Bde Maka Ska (Be-DAY Mah-Kah Ska).
