Our vision is to create a place of healing and celebration at Owámniyomni (meaning “turbulent waters” in the Dakota language), or St. Anthony Falls, that acknowledges the past and advances a more equitable and inclusive future.
Join the conversation to shape the future of the Upper Lock.
It is our intent to provide a forum for all members of the community to participate in the engagement process and contribute their thoughts, ideas, and priorities. We also acknowledge that the site of the Upper Lock is within Dakota homeland, and that the conspicuously missing story within this historic district is that of its first inhabitants. Therefore, our engagement process is structured to center Native voices and seek a fuller understanding of Indigenous experience in our community and on this site.
