The future Wakáŋ Tipi Center, currently in design phase, will be located in the 27 acre Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary in Saint Paul. The Center will honor the significance of Wakáŋ Tipi cave as a Dakota sacred site, provide authentic Dakota interpretation of the culture and history of Dakota people in Saint Paul, offer environmental education on the geology, urban ecology, restoration, and migration routes within and around Wakan Tipi, through an authentically Indigenous lens. The Center will create space for cultural connections and healing through the arts and nature and serve as a bold leader in Indigenous, place-based environmental and cultural work in an urban setting.
Geothermal, solar, net-zero energy use, soil contamination, floodplain, and government partnerships at the city, county, state, and federal levels. There is a lot packed into this project!
