About the “Dakota Writers Speak to Presence” Reading:

On the 150th anniversary of the largest mass execution in the history of the United States—the hanging of 38 Dakota men in Mankato for their role in the U.S. Dakota Conflict—and in the 150 anniversary year of the Dakota conflict, Dakota writers speak to Presence. Although our presence is often erased or misrepresented in mainstream media, we are here. Join us as we reflect, remember, and share. This event will be a Potluck, so bring something to share or just come to hear incredible poetry.

This is a FREE Event.
