Learning about Mnísota’s First People: a new teacher’s guide to Oȟéyawahe

Working together, the Minnesota Humanities Center and Osseo Area Schools American Indian Program have created a guide for teachers based upon Oheyawahe/Pilot Knob in Mendota Heights. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017, this site is rich with opportunities for learning about Native culture, Minnesota history, geography, art and the environment. Lesson plans are included for elementary, middle and high school students that meet Minnesota education standards for social studies, science, art and language arts.

Pilot Knob is already a popular destination for field trips, with over 500 students and 1200 adults visiting in groups in the past year. This Guide can add content and depth to the experience for young people and adults alike.

The full teacher’s guide is available for reference and downloaded on the website of the Minnesota Humanities Center, and here on the Pilot Knob Preservation Association website.
