Resiliency is Inherited
Mni Sota Makoce is the ancestral land of the Dakota peoples. This land looks very different now than it once did. While walking down the streets of Gakaabikaang (Minneapolis) we see glimpses of what this land could have looked like before colonialism and capitalism overtook. Native peoples have been forced into assimilation, relocation, and genocide on the land we stand on right now. Inspired by the wake of the social uprisings and the ever present pandemic; I find myself asking what do we do next? Maybe we need to look to our ancestors to find out?
