"Why Treaties Matter" TRAVELING EXHIBIT
“Why Treaties Matter: Self-Government in the Dakota and Ojibwe Nations” is a nationally recognized, award-winning exhibit made in partnership with the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.
The exhibit explores 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.
This event will be held in the Morrison gallery, which is open M-Th 9 a.m.–8 p.m., F 9 a.m.–5 p.m., and Saturday noon–4 p.m.
