Bdote is Dakota Sacred Landscape

03/10/2021 | 2m | Video has closed captioning.

The Twin Cities area—and all of southern Minnesota—is Dakota homeland. A series of sites along the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers form a sacred landscape the Dakota call Bdote. The Bdote sacred landscape connects contemporary Dakota people to Grandmother Earth. These sacred places are sites of both genesis and genocide in the past, and erasure in the present. Produced with Carleton College.
