Twin Cities Cohort

The Twin Cities Cohort is working with Makoce Ikikcupi, a project that emerged more than a decade ago as a response to the historical legacy of forced removal and exile of the Očéti Šakówiŋ people. Work with Makoce Ikikcupi centers mutual learning, decolonization through advocacy and activism, and re-establishing Indigenous knowledge and sustainable ecological practices, foodways, and language. This work involves undergraduate and graduate courses in American Indian Studies, Art, and an interdisciplinary course on climate change in Fall 2020.
