Indigenous Peoples have inhabited and been in relationship with the land now called Bloomington, Minnesota for thousands of years. Historians Dr. Kate Beane and Peter DeCarlo will discuss the deep history of the Dakota people who have called this land home and the impacts colonization has had on both the people and landscape. The discussion will take place on August 22, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., in the Black Box Theater, Civic Plaza, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road. The presenters will explore how history can inform art, help us heal divisions and create a better future for our communities. For more information, or to register, visit blm.mn/indigenoushistory.
