New Publication: Mendota Dakota: Stories of Land & Leadership

In honor of Sharon Lennartson’s 75th Birthday – Tribal Chairwoman of the Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Tribal Community (MMDTC)) I am thrilled to announce the publication of Mendota Dakota: Stories of Land & Leadership.

This book is a collaboration between MMDTC and students in Justice and Peace Studies at the University of St. Thomas who interviewed 20 MMDTC members and friends, and collected other stories to present this narrative of the Mendota Dakota.

All proceeds benefit the Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Tribal Community.

The stories and the copyright for the book are reserved by the MMDTC and used with permission for this publication.

Thank you to the MMDTC Tribal Council, University of St. Thomas College of Arts and Sciences Research in Action, and especially the dedicated student authors of this work.
