U unveils plans for Tribal Nations Plaza at stadium

The University unveiled plans for Minnesota Tribal Nations Plaza Monday, which will be located at the largest entrance of TCF Bank Stadium. The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community donated $10 million to the plaza last fall and added an additional $2 million for improvements. âÄúThis will be one of the most vibrant and visible parts of TCF Bank Stadium and serve as a lasting tribute to the importance of MinnesotaâÄôs Indian people,âÄù Athletics Director Joel Maturi said in a press release. The plaza will include 11 18-foot tall sky markers made of glass with information about each Minnesota tribal nation.
