HOCOKATA TI | Discover Dakota History

Hoċokata Ti’s public exhibit, Mdewakanton: Dwellers of the Spirit Lake, provides visitors with an experience that will enhance their knowledge and understanding of the Mdewakanton Dakota people and their history.

Whether guests prefer to explore the exhibit on their own or desire a group guided tour, Mdewakanton: Dwellers of the Spirit Lake will provide guests with a traditional Mdewakanton Dakota experience unlike any other.
