It Happened Here! 1851 at Holmes Landing

When Thomas A. Holmes and William Louis Quinn arrived in the area called Holmes Landing (later called Shakopee) the area was called Tiŋta-otoŋwe, a village of 600 Dakota Indians. Learn about the white people who moved to the area over the next few years, and the Indians who were already here for 175 years before the white people arrived.

This presentation by Shakopee Heritage Society Vice-President and Senior Research Chair David R. Schleper was held on Oct. 9, 2018 for the Sakpe ti Senior Lounge at the Shakopee Community Center, as part of the History of Shakopee Series.
