This webinar will provide an overview of the histories and legacies of treaty-making in Minnesota. We will discuss the 16 treaties that specifically ceded land in Minnesota to the United States between 1837 and 1861, focusing, in particular, on the treaties that impacted Northern Minnesota. We will conclude the discussion by examining the legacies of these treaties, especially the (lack of) relationship many non-Indigenous Minnesotans have towards these treaties today.
