New documentary on Dakota War of 1862 to be shown (09/09/2012)
A new documentary, produced and directed by Dakota activist and artist Sheldon P. Wolfchild, chronicles the tragic events leading up to the Dakota War of 1862. It has already been shown at several venues, and will be shown again as part of a series of 1862 commemoration events in Winona, Minnesota. Wolfchild will be present at these scheduled showings for personal commentary. Wolfchild is also the Past-Tribal Chairman of the Lower Sioux Indian Community.

In addition, historian Mark Diedrich who has written numerous books on American Indian history in Minnesota, will join Wolfchild for questions and answers following the screening of the film:

The first part of the Wolfchild film is entitled “The Indian System.” It features the historical work of Mark Diedrich and Dr. David Nichols, who wrote Lincoln and the Indians. This film does not mince words about how the U.S. “Indian System” brought the Dakota to such a low point that they thought it would be better to die in a war than starve to death. It gives a chance for viewers to assign blame and culpability to key people who were largely responsible for bringing on this war, men such as Henry H. Sibley, Alexander Ramsey, Joseph R. Brown, Thomas J. Galbraith, and Morton S. Wilkinson.

The showings of this documentary film will be free and open to the public at the following times and locations:
