Dakota community leads reclamation of land near St. Anthony Falls for traditional use

The land near St. Anthony Falls, the birthplace of Minneapolis and a sacred site to the Indigenous people who lived there before the arrival of Europeans, is once again coming under native stewardship.

The federal government is transferring 5 acres to local control, spurring a unique development process.

Owámniyomni Okhódayapi, a nonprofit formerly known as Friends of the Falls, has selected a design team guided by Dakota knowledge keepers to conduct a consensus-based ecological restoration.
