"Why Treaties Matter" Panel Exhibit
Preston, MN 55965
"Why Treaties Matter: Self-Government in the Dakota and Ojibwe Nations" is a nationally recognized, award-winning, traveling exhibit made in collaboration with the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council, the Minnesota Humanities Center, 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 panel exhibit is on display at Historic Forestville Aug. 7, 8, and 14, 2021.
This exhibition was developed with money from the Arts and Culture Heritage Fund that was created with a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 and the Patrick and Aimee Butler Family Foundation.
