The Lower Sioux Community Council will improve the visitor experience at its interpretive center by enhancing programmatic offerings and integrating multi-sensory Dakota language and cultural context throughout the site. A new interpretive curriculum incorporating the contemporary Dakota perspective will be developed, piloted, and launched to support meaningful cultural exchanges between visitors and interpreters. Additionally, new interpretive panels, audio and visual equipment, and signage featuring the Dakota language will help the center transform itself from presenting a static historical perspective to showcasing the vibrant living tribal community it serves.
