Mni Sóta Maḳoce Curriculum

INSTRUCTOR OVERVIEW OF CONTENT AND MATERIALS

A goal of this project is that the Mni Sóta Maḳoce curriculum will be taught to sixth grade students across Minnesota as part of the required sixth grade social studies curriculum. Students will learn about and integrate Dakota values of caring for the land as a relative through learning about Dakota environmental teachings and philosophies. Examining Minnesota as a Dakota place will encourage students to consider their own individual, family, and community connections to place. Teachers will guide them with access to and training in the Mni Sóta Maḳoce curriculum, ongoing support by project staff, and access to first-person perspectives of Dakota youth, adults, and elders in their classrooms. Course materials include video, audio, graphics and written content along with downloadable PDFs of each lesson and included topics.
