Honoring Dakota Project Online Community Conversation: Maggie Lorenz

We are honored to co-present this online conversation led by the Honoring Dakota Project with Maggie Lorenz, Executive Director of WAKAN TIPI. Maggie (Pabaksawiŋ) is Dakota and Anishinaabe. She is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe and descends from Spirit Lake Dakota Nation. She has spent her career in the fields of education, cultural resiliency and healing, and environmental justice.

Maggie serves on the board of directors for Friends of the Falls, F. R. Bigelow Foundation, and Tiwahe Foundation.

Art of the Rural is grateful to collaborate with Honoring Dakota Project, Winona County Historical Society, Engage Winona, and The Cedar Tree Project in the Spillway initiative in Winona, Minnesota, a town located along the Mississippi River in Dakota homelands.

Through support for artists, culture bearers, artisans, and storytellers – alongside the local organizations that support them – Spillway works to create the conditions for engaged projects that honor diverse lived experience, deepen regional relationships, and build rural-urban networks of knowledge-sharing and exchange that will create opportunities for artists, culture bearers, and artisans to thrive and connect with new colleagues and audiences.

We are also grateful for the support of the Chicago Community Foundation.
