Below is some general information about Shakopee:
Shakopee is a city southwest of downtown Minneapolis in the state of Minnesota and is the county seat of Scott County. Located on the south bank bend of the Minnesota River, Shakopee and nearby suburbs comprise the southwest portion of Minneapolis-Saint Paul, the sixteenth largest metropolitan area in the United States with 3.3 million people. The population of Shakopee was 37,076 at the 2010 census. The river bank’s Shakopee Historic District contains burial mounds built by prehistoric cultures. In the 17th century, Chief Shakopee of the Mdewakanton Dakota established his village on the east end. Trading brought about the city’s establishment in the 19th century and Shakopee boomed as a commerce exchange site between river and rail at Murphy’s Landing. Once an isolated city competing in the Minnesota River Valley, by the 1960s its economy shifted to the expanding metropolitan area. Significant growth as a bedroom community occurred after U.S. Highway 169 was realigned in 1996 toward the new Bloomington Ferry Bridge. The city is currently known for the Valleyfair amusement park and the Canterbury Park horse racetrack. The Minnesota Renaissance Festival is associated with Shakopee though is located in nearby Louisville Township. Shakopee has an orderly annexation agreement for the entirety of the township with no definite timeline.
Burial mounds along the Minnesota River bluff located in present Veterans Memorial Park date between 500 to 2,000 years. Following the Dakota migration from Mille Lacs Lake in the 17th century, several bands of Mdewakanton Dakota settled along the Minnesota River and continued the mound building tradition. One of these bands was led by Chief Shakopee. The Ojibwa nation began pushing into Dakota territory and reportedly Shakopee’s band skirmished in 1768 and 1775. Shakopee died in 1827 at Fort Snelling. The second man to take the name Chief Shakopee was his adopted Ojibwa son Eaglehead. The original Shakopee acquired his name when his wife, White Buffalo Woman, gave birth to sextuplet boys. Shakopee means the six. Explorer Joseph Nicollet recorded that Eaglehead had been elected to lead the band and assume his father’s name in 1838. By this time, Nicollet referred to the Village of the Six, a permanent village south of the river, acting as a boundary to the Ojibwa, and was east of the present downtown. He noted the village and locality was commonly called the village of the prairie. The Shakopee band lived in summer bark lodges and winter tipis, following the changes of the season with cornfields planted. The Dakota nation ceded land in 1851 and many relocated to Chief Shakopee’s village which had moved south to where the current Shakopee-Mdewakanton Indian Reservation is in nearby Prior Lake. The band swelled to 400 people and leadership passed to Shakopee II’s son Eatoka who became Shakpedan at the death of his father. After the Dakota War of 1862, Shakpedan was hanged at Fort Snelling in 1865 for participating in the massacres. Descendants of the Mdewakanton Dakota placed 572 acres of Shakopee land into tribal land trust in 2003. Meanwhile in 1851, Thomas A. Holmes established a trading post west of the Dakota and platted Shakopee Village in 1854 after Chief Shakopee II. The city quickly grew, incorporating in 1857 but surrendered their charter in 1861 due to conflicts in the Dakota War. As tensions lifted, the city incorporated again in 1870 but the western end was left in township status and renamed Jackson Township, Minnesota in 1861, likely after President Andrew Jackson.
Shakopee Public Schools include five elementary schools, one Sixth Grade Center, two junior high schools and one senior high school. Students in grade 6 attend the Pearson Sixth Grade Center, formerly known as Pearson Elementary. Shakopee Junior Highs are known as Shakopee Junior High East and Shakopee Junior High West. Shakopee East was formerly known as the Middle School, which taught grades 6 and 7. Shakopee East Junior High now teaches grades 7-9. Shakopee Junior High West, formerly known as Shakopee Junior High, previously taught grades 8 and 9, but now, like Shakopee East, Shakopee West teaches grades 7-9. A border divides the Junior High aged kids to East or West. Shakopee High School has grades 10 through 12. Shakopee is also the location of the Shakopee Area Catholic Schools. The city of Shakopee also has a campus of the Globe University/Minnesota School of Business, a private career college offering programs in business, health sciences, legal sciences, multimedia and design and information technology.
Shakopee is located in Minnesota’s 2nd congressional district, represented by John Kline, a Republican, scoring 2.8% progressive on a range of issues and 88% conservative based on 2006 House votes. Located in Shakopee is a relatively new soccer complex that has a growing program. There are also several regional attractions.
Shakopee was mentioned in the 2006 film Cars when the character Minny said she once went to Shakopee for Crazy Days. The voice actress, Edie McClurg, ad-libbed the city’s name into the script. Shakopee does celebrate Derby Days named for the horse racing tradition of the city’s history, and there may have been a predecessor to it called Crazy Days. Most likely, however, this is a reference to a sidewalk sale, which are common in the Midwest and often have names that include the term Crazy Days.
