Event Description

Healing Minnesota's Stories is a volunteer movement committed to raising public awareness to American Indian issues and history. Bethel is partnering with Healing Minnesota's Stories to offer a sacred sites tour on Saturday September 27th, featuring key locations in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. By better understanding the stories of the earth upon which we walk, we can begin to better understand the people who were created from that earth.

Tour leader Jim Bear Jacobs is a Turtle clan member of the Mohican Nation. Jim Bear lives in the Twin Cities and is dedicated to raising awareness to American Indian issues. He serves as a cultural facilitator, leading conversations regarding an American Indian approach to Christian theology.
