Little Crow, other Dakota killed in war and its aftermath honored at Hutchinson, Minn., ceremony
HUTCHINSON -- Descendants of the Dakota leader Taoyateduta, early Minnesota settlers and others gathered here Saturday for a ceremony to honor the Dakota chief, known as Little Crow, and other Dakota.
The ceremony was held on the occasion of his death, July 3, more than 150 years ago. It honored Chief Little Crow and other Dakotas who died during the U.S.-Dakota War and its aftermath. More than one-quarter of the Dakota in Minnesota died in the Dakota Diaspora following the war.
