On the 155th Anniversary of the largest mass execution in the history of the United States, the hanging of the 38 Dakota men in Mankato for their role in the U.S. Dakota War, the words of contemporary Dakota writers are woven into Oceti Sakowin. We speak our words several generations after the Dakota War and the United States government’s expulsion of Dakota from Minnesota. We speak our words, even if we are often erased, misrepresented, or forgotten in mainstream media and culture. We are here. Please join us as we reflect, remember, and share.
