Descendents of Dakota People March to Remember Tortured Ancestors

Friday, November 12, 2010

This week, descendants of the Dakota people are walking 150 miles through southern Minnesota to remember the 1,700 people who, in 1862, were forced to march to concentration camps as punishment for uprising against the whites. Many people died of starvation and disease along the way, and the survivors were scattered to other parts of the Midwest. 

We talk with Allison Herrera, reporter at KFAI in Minnesota about the march.
