Dakota: Minnesota racism didn't vanish on election day

From Chris Mato Nunpa
Hi All,
I thought some of you might be interested in Nick Coleman's article on the Dakota Commemorative March and Waziyata Win, my younger daughter, and the 71 plus comments which clearly indicate there's a long way to go. White America may be ready to elect a black man as president of the U.S., but are they ready to acknowledge the truth about what really happened in this state of Minnesota and in the United States?
Is white America ready to admit the massive land theft, the broken treaties, the genocide of the Dakota People in Minnesota and of the Indigenous Peoples of the U.S.; the suppression of languages, the suppression of religions, etc. etc. etc.?
