Legacy of Survival Remembers The Exiled

august_cover.jpgIn commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the U.S. - Dakota War of 1862, the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, the Santee Sioux Tribe of Nebraska, and the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe are sponsoring a two-and-a-half day event in Flandreau, South Dakota. Legacy of Survival: A Coming Home is the first such event sponsored by Dakota tribal governments from outside of Minnesota, and also the first event to focus on celebrating and discussing the histories and current vitality of exiled Dakota communities.
"Here we are, the direct descendants of the exiles, and we weren't even being considered or remembered," said Cora Jones, the Secretary of the Santee Sioux Tribe of Nebraska. "We wanted input on how the 150th anniversary was going to be commemorated."
Although Minnesota is the original homeland of all Dakota people, many were forcibly removed from the state via the Sioux-Dakota Removal Act of 1863 and relocated to reservations or reserves in North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Montana, and Canada. As a result, 90% of the total Dakota population now resides outside of Minnesota. This act still bans members of these exiled Dakota tribes from returning to Minnesota and denies them rights to sacred sites located within the boundaries of the state.
One of the main goals of the event is to make the general population aware that this act is still on the books and currently impacting tribes. Although the call to amend the act is largely symbolic and would not result in any land or money being transferred to exiled tribes, it would open the door to more tribes being involved with cultural preservation and resource management in Minnesota.
"This is the first step in meaningful government to government consultation and relationship-building with regards to sacred sites," said Franky Jackson (Sisseton Wapton Dakota Oyate), Cultural Research Consultant and one of the main organizers of the event. "Until that is addressed, a lot of the tribes who currently reside out of Minnesota will never really feel that true reconciliation has taken place."
Another byproduct of the exile of Dakota people from Minnesota is that many of the tribes have lost contact with one another.
"The goal here is to reintroduce ourselves so we know our history and our journey," said Melvin Houston, spokesperson for Minnesota affairs for the Santee Sioux Nation of Nebraska and another key organizer of the event.
