Author Martin Case speaks about his new book, “The Relentless Business of Treaties” with scholar Dr. David Wilkins (University of Minnesota, American Indian Studies). The two will have a dialogue about how indigenous land became property in the United States system and why the relationships and connections between treaty signers—both for Indigenous nations and the United States—led to structures and systems still in place today. Book signing and reception to follow.
Books will be available for purchase on site at the Red Lake event. Guests will need to bring books to be signed for the State Capitol Event. You may purchase “The Relentless Business of Treaties” from the Minnesota Historical Society Press. Two titles from Dr. Wilkins that we recommend are “Hollow Justice: A History of Indigenous Claims in the United States” and “Red Prophet: The Punishing Intellectualism of Vine Deloria, Jr.”
