SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Shakopee High School will soon complete its first smudging space — designed for and by Native American students to connect with their culture. 

There are about 231 Native American students from 28 tribal nations in the district, according to Shakopee Public Schools. Smudging is a meaningful cultural practice for many tribes that involves burning plants to cleanse the mind and energy around you. 

A group of Native American students led the design and a class of engineering students constructed the space. 

KARE 11 News at Noon learned more about the space from American Indian Education Coordinator Justyne Vogel, teacher Brett Kaufhold and student Chanta Brewer. 

A school spokesperson said the project is expected to be completed in early to mid-spring.
