Learn about the material and cultural innovations the Dakota people developed in order to survive on the prairie, including the travois pack, a traditional American Indian tool used to move belongings across the prairie. Visitors can discover the Dakota's sophisticated interaction with the prairie and their deep interrelationship involving nature, sacredness, life, community and family.

This program also commemorates the August anniversary of the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 with a screening of Mark Diedrich's new documentary "Little Crow and the Dakota War." After the film, Diedrich will present an overview of his research and take questions.
