This memorial is to honor those Dakota who created the First Mahkato Wacipi in 1972.

The Wacipi is to remember the thirty-eight Dakota executed in Mankato in 1862 and to create a spirit of reconciliation between the people of Mankato and the Dakota people.

The following Dakota people with members of the Mankato YMCA planned the first Wacipi:

Amos & Ione Owen · Wallace & Gertrude Wells, Sr. · David Larsen, Sr. · Norman & Edith Crooks · Amos & Rosemma Crooks · Hereditary Chief Ernest & Vernell Wabasha.

Co-founders: Bud Lawrence and Jim Buckley, Sr.
