Editorial: Pain of Dakota-U.S. War continues: The time is here to work for healing
Today is the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the U.S.-Dakota War, a conflict between the Dakota Nation and the nation of the United States, including the young state of Minnesota.
The U.S.-Dakota War anniversary is not a time for celebration for either nation. It deserves and needs to be a time of remembrance and of healing and reconciliation.
The war that broke out on Aug. 17, 1862, resulted in fear, pain, turmoil and change for the Dakota Nation and Minnesota.
