Filed under: Native American — Alison Aten @ 3:59 pm

Both the City of Minneapolis and the City of St. Paul have declared 2013 as the Year of the Dakota. The text from the resolutions is below.

The Minnesota Historical Society Press is honored to publish a few new books by Dakota authors, and in the spirit of fostering dialogue in response to making sure that “every effort . . . is made to ensure that the Dakota perspective is presented” we hope that these books help contribute to the conversation in the coming year.
