Shakopean is an independent, locally-owned online news website. Our mission is to be a trusted source for news that impacts and matters to the residents of Shakopee.

We have a penchant for unearthing public documents and getting to the bottom of rumors, so news tips and other tidbits are always welcome. 

Shakopean was founded and was managed until August 2021 by Amanda McKnight, who had previously reported for six years with the Shakopee Valley News. McKnight resigned in August 2021 and the publication is currently exploring new ownership opportunities.

Stay tuned for what is sure to be an exciting future!
