Dakota people helped prepare for and welcome bison at Minneopa State Park in Mankato when they were moved from Blue Mounds State Park. This partnership showed respect for the significance of bison to the Dakota culture and added another layer of meaning to their return. Learn about the role the Dakota played in Gwen Westerman welcoming bison back to their homeland and gain a wider perspective on how Mankato area people interact with the Dakota culture every day.
