SDSU Speaker Series: Dakota Puckertoes and the Woodland Heritage

A graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design with an emphasis in fine arts studio, he is also a traditional artist, having been trained in beadwork, quillwork and moccasin making. A current artist in residence with the Minnesota Historical Society, Jacobson is working on revitalizing the “Puckertoe” style of moccasin amongst the “Isanti” bands of Dakota people in Minnesota.
