Trip to Santee Sioux Nation Reservation

I visited the Santee Sioux Nation Reservation for the Nation Supreme Court’s first oral argument yesterday.

Here is the court: Amanda WhiteEagle (Ho-Chunk Nation); Terri Mason Moore (Osage Nation); Andrew Adams III (Muscogee Nation); John LaVelle (Santee Sioux Nation); and me (GTB)

Tribal Proclamation honoring the warriors executed by the United States in 1862 at Fort Snelling:


Tribal Court and other tribal buildings:

A mural honoring those who the United States forcibly moved via riverboat from the Cow Creek area to the current reservation, right there in the tribal government building. Still speechless.
