Why Treaties Matter: Self-Government in the Dakota and Ojibwe Nation

July 17, 2016

This traveling exhibit explores relationships between Dakota and Ojibwe Indian Nations and the U.S. government in this place we now call Minnesota. Learn, through a video presentation and 20 banners featuring text and images, how treaties affected the lands and lifeways of the indigenous peoples of this place, and why these binding agreements between nations still matter today.

This tour is made possible by a partnership with Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.

Funded project of the Minnesota Humanities Council. The Minnesota Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
