Some of you may remember that a little over a year ago, there was 3 days of action protesting the Minnesota Sesquicentennial and the lack of truthful history regarding the cultural, spiritual, emotional and physical cost to the Dakota and all First Nations People of the area in becoming a state, to educate about the genocide of the Dakota people and draw attention to the Treaty of 1805.Â Â One of the actions was to meet the Sesquicentennial Wagon Train at Fort Snelling.
During that protest, several people were arrested and three of us were charged.Â The case goes to trial tomorrow and we would be grateful to anyone that can turn out to support us.
Trial begins at 9:00 at the Hennepin County Courthouse Downtown.Â I donâ€™t know which courtroom, but I am including the case information below as well as a link to a you tube video of the protestâ€¦
