Blood on the Prairie A Novel of the Sioux Uprising, Dakota Conflict, American Civil war

"Toby Ryker, chief scout for the Sixth Minnesota, is a red-headed, half white-half Chippewa man. Living life to the brim, he would rather ride the prairies than plow them. But his Sioux neighbors, despairing a life of near starvation and broken treaties, rise up like a prairie whirlwind in September 1862. They mercilessly ravage the frontier, killing more than 1,000 settlers on Indian lands in the greatest storm of death rivaled only by the Civil War battles decimating the South. Ryker must remain loyal to the Army, aid his Indian kinsman or just stand aside. When the outgunned Sioux surrender, Ryker is left with one more bitter duty. Somehow he must find words to comfort the sorrowing wives of the 38 warriors who are condemned to hang." WILLIAM GARWOOD - TRUE WEST MAGAZINE MAY 2009

The sesquicentennial of the Dakota Conflict officially ended on December 26, 2012, exactly 150 years after the execution of 38 Sioux Warriors at Mankato MN.

In the words of the Dakota concerning the Dakota Conflict: "Forgive everybody everything."
We honor all victims of the Dakota Conflict
We forgive the crimes committed by our ancestors
We support efforts at reconciliation between the white and Indian cultures.
