News and Events: Sacred Site Tours Restart; Book Release: White Birch, Red Hawthorn; First Minnesotans Caucus at the Legislature

With the weather warming, Healing Minnesota Stories is restarting its Sacred Site Tours. The first open tours are Saturday, April 15, 2017  and Saturday, May 13. Both run from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Tours are led by Jim Bear Jacobs (Mohican) and Bob Klanderud (Dakota). The tours offer an opportunity to learn about Minnesota history from a Native perspective through story-telling and experiencing the sites in silence, meditation, and reflection.
