Developed by the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council, the Minnesota Humanities Center and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C. with support from Minnesota’s 11 tribal nations, this traveling exhibit explores the 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.
Also check out the exhibit’s companion website for more information and context regarding treaties in Minnesota.
This project is funded in part with money from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund that was created with a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 and the Patrick and Aimee Butler Family Foundation.
