Held in conjunction with the exhibition Commemorating Controversy: The Dakota–U.S. War of 1862, on view at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., January 14–December 29, 2015, The Dakota–U.S. War of 1862: A Symposium of Remembrance examines the lasting consequences of the violent and divisive Dakota–U.S. War of 1862 that led to the exile of the Dakota people from their homeland. The program of remembrance explores the subject from a variety of perspectives, with attention to the role of broken treaties; the effects on the community and Dakota history after the war; memory and multigenerational impacts; efforts at reconciliation and healing; and how cultural institutions address the Dakota War and their efforts in partnering with the Dakota people.
