Community Conversation | Building Connections
May 21 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
On Saturday, May 21, Friends of the Falls and the Native American Community Development Institute (NACDI) join the City of Minneapolis’ Community Connections Conference, centered on the theme ‘Forward Together’.
Find The Falls Initiative in the exhibit hall (Minneapolis Convention Center, First Floor, Hall B) from 9am-3pm. Meet the project team, share your input on initial design concepts, and help us consider opportunities to connect to the land at Owámniyomni and each other. Food and beverage provided!
Friends of the Falls will also participate in the ‘Local Government’ breakout session from 10:30am-11:45am to discuss our unique engagement process, the role of the Native Partnership Council, and how we’ve structured partnerships with the City of Minneapolis and Tribal governments.
