Encounter on the Great Plains

Karen V. Hansen discusses the processes that led to homesteaders taking land on the Spirit Lake Dakota Indian Reservation. Homesteaders became both neighbors of Dakotas and usurpers of their land. In the aftermath of war and conflict, they shared struggles to maintain a language, practice a culture, and honor loyalties to more than one nation. Karen V. Hansen
Professor of Sociology, and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Brandeis University.
