OPOS Tours and Travel - Minneapolis/St. Paul Dakota History Tours Information

“For thousands of years, Native People have lived here. To the Dakotas, it was called “Mni-Sota.” Come join us in remembering our past.”

Hear the ancient stories of the original peoples of this area, the Native Americans. The fabled story of Hiawatha, the beautiful mythical Indian princess was inspired by Longfellows imagination from the beauty of this area.

Listen to the sacred stories about the Dakota and the Ojibwe whom have lived in this area for thousands of years. You will be guided back in history to learn about their customs, traditions and beliefs.

St. Paul is teeming of Indian history, from the ancient    Dakota villages to the spectacular burial grounds in Mounds Park. Kaposia is the oldest known village in what is now St. Paul. We will learn how one of its respected leaders, Chief Little Crow was instrumental in the events leading up to the 1862 Dakota Uprising. You will hear how the Government of Minnesota and its leaders played a grisly role in the death and the subsequent “Display“ of Little Crow for over 100 years!
