BP: New Minnesota History Center exhibit tells stories of the state and its land from a Native perspective
December 2, 2019
ST. PAUL - Every time you say "Minnesota," you're uttering a Dakota word that describes the reflection of the sky onto water. Tribal peoples have been living in Minnesota for thousands of years.
A new permanent exhibit at the Minnesota History Center offers a portrait of these native communities throughout Minnesota's history. It tells these stories from a native perspective - a point of view that has historically been overlooked, said Kate Beane, director of Native American Initiatives at the Minnesota Historical Society. The exhibit, "Our Home: Native Minnesota," reflects a year and a half's worth of collecting stories and items from the past and present.
