The Dakota War

The latest episode of This American Life is a big one: it talks about the Dakota War of 1862. Heard of it? I hadn’t, either.

What I learned was pretty awful stuff: a bloody battle between Native Americans and white settlers in Minnesota that ended in a public hanging and, in time, the US government dropping all promises to the Dakota. It’s all amazing and before yesterday, I was totally ignorant about it.
