Bdote Historical Site

The junction of the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers - known to the Dakota as Bdote - is a place of major social, cultural and historical

significance to all people inhabiting the region, a place whose history evokes both pride and pain.  It is a place of cultural importance to many

Dakota people as a site of creation, as well as a historical gathering place and the site of the internment of Dakota people in the wake

of the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862.  usdakotawar.org
