One of our governing council members, Jim Rock, was interviewed for an article about our first village Zani Otunwe. Read the article, ‘Star-chitecture returns to the Minnesota prairie after 300 years,’ here.

Our Earth Lodge Has a Roof!
On December 10, we got the main earth lodge covered, just in time for the first real snow of the season! We are so happy to have the roof on this lodge, which means we are set for the rest of the winter. In the spring, we’ll add more black dirt and plant grass seed over the top. The door isn’t on and the skylights are not yet covered, but we will continue to work on those in coming weeks. We have a wood stove coming soon, so we will be able to work inside as the weather gets even colder.
Zani Otunwe is what justice looks like for Dakota people! This is a place of healing, connection, and restoration.
Rafters went up earlier this season.
