Andy Vig, son of Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux chairman Charles Vig, and coordinator of the culture and history preservation work group, in front of Hocokata Ti, a new cultural center and gathering space for the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community.

With its curved lines and walls of windows, the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community's new cultural center rises over the prairie in Shakopee, the shape of its seven enormous teepees reflected in a stream created to represent the Minnesota River.

Community members say what is inside is just as striking: a public exhibit presenting Mdewakanton Dakota history and culture from their own perspective.
