NAC Lecture: 'Remembering US-Dakota Wars on the Northern Great Plains'

Aaron Barth, North Dakota State University historian, will present "Remembering the US-Dakota Wars on the Northern Great Plains" at the Northwest Art Center lecture series Monday, Feb. 24, at 7 p.m. in the Aleshire Theater, Minot State University.

For the last 150-plus years, groups and individuals have reflected on and interpreted the US-Dakota Wars of 1862 to 1864, Barth said, and the perspectives of these "memory groups" have influenced how the conflicts were remembered. Monuments were erected throughout North Dakota and the northern Great Plains to commemorate significant events of the conflicts. Barth's talk will analyze the monuments and the point of view of the people who erected them.

An informal reception will follow the program.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The event is free and open to the public, and parking is unrestricted.
