Amos Owen Award

Since 2001, the annual Amos Owen Award has recognized individuals in the Red Wing area for their work in promoting justice and equality for others based around human rights (not solely humanitarian work). The award is named after Amos Owen, a Mdewakanton elder and spiritual leader from the Prairie Island Indian Community who worked tirelessly to preserve Dakota language and culture.

Congratulations to the 2020 Amos Owen Award recipient, Maureen Nelson.  

The next nomination window will be announced in 2021.
