Why Treaties Matter
December 31, 2018 - March 9, 2019
Through engaging panels and multi-media components, this exhibit shows how Dakota and Ojibwe treaties with the U.S. government affected the lands and lifeways of the Indigenous Peoples of the place now called Minnesota and why these binding agreements between nations still matter today.
Free and open to the public.
This exhibit was made possible through a unique partnership of the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council, the Minnesota Humanities Center, and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
