MSC SE Prairie Island Indian Community Flag

Updated: Nov 2, 2023

In acknowledgment of Minnesota State College Southeast’s presence on Dakota Land, a ceremony will be held in Red Wing next week to raise the flag of the Prairie Island Indian Community.

It will now fly along with the flags of the United States of America and the State of Minnesota at the entry to the college campus.

The Flag Raising event will take place on Monday, November 6, from 12 noon to 1 pm at the Red Wing campus, 308 Pioneer Road.

Following the ceremony, lunch will be served. Please RSVP by the end of the day TODAY (Thursday) to Lisa Furan at 507-453-1463 or for the luncheon.

In 2022, the college adopted a land acknowledgement statement, which says in part, “Minnesota State College Southeast acknowledges that our campuses in Red Wing and Winona occupy ancestral lands once belonging to the Dakota Nation.

We recognize that the Dakota people continue to live and thrive in Minnesota, including the Prairie Island Indian Community. We honor with gratitude the land and acknowledge the history that brought us to reside on these territories.”
