First Person Radio - 9/19/2012

Please join Laura Waterman Wittstock on Wednesday, September 19th at 9 am Central as she talks with authors Professor Gwen Westerman and Bruce McCann White about their new book: Mni Sota Makoce, Land Where the Waters Reflect the Clouds, which examines narratives of the people’s origins, their associations with the land, and the seasons by drawing on oral history interviews, archival work, and painstaking comparisons of Dakota, French, and English sources. They consider Dakota interactions with Europeans and offer an in-depth “reading between the lines” of historical documents—some of them virtually unknown—and treaties made with the United States, uncovering misunderstandings and outright deceptions that helped lead to war in 1862.
