The Kaposia Times mural
Today, we see the impressive structures of the Twin Cities around us, with the skylines etched into our memories. However, before these cities, there existed the Dakota village of Kaposia, previously located where the Union Depot downtown Saint Paul now stands. Learn more about Dakota places in the Twin Cities via my Dakota land map.
Two Dakota people read the news of their day as imagery of the world they lived in and the world we live in floats all around them. We see the stars which guide us, the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers which offer us life from the waters, there are plants illustrated in a traditional Dakota floral style, buffalo, cranes and tipis as the skylines of the Twin Cities float through times. As past and present history intermingle in this mural, we look forward to a future where Native presence continues to celebrated and elevated.
