Events: Indian Land Tenure Foundation Presentation; Dakota Language and Scavenger Hunt

Indian Land Tenure Foundation’s Stainbrook to Speak Tuesday

When European colonists came to this land there some 50 million native people. Within less that three centuries their numbers were down to 5 million, and their total land was down from 2.3 billion acres to 56 million. How did this happen? Why don’t Americans know more of this history? What is being done to reverse the injustices of the past?

Come and listen to a presentation titled: “American Indians and their Lands” by Cris Stainbrook, President, Indian Land Tenure Foundation, Tuesday, October 17, 7:00 pm, at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church’s Library, 2136 Carter Avenue, St. Paul. It is being hosted by “The Real American History Book Group” but you do not have to have read any books to attend this event.
