Blog: 'Why Treaties Matter' exhibit goes around Minnesota

"The state, federal and Indian Affairs Council exhibit, "Why Treaties Matter" is making a stop in the Minnesota State Capitol this week, coinciding with the start of the 2012 legislative session.

"We need everyone working cooperatively, constructively together in order to achieve the full potential of this state for all of our citizens, for all people. And it is in that spirit that I welcome this exhibit here to our Capitol today," said Gov. Mark Dayton, who was introduced as a "friend to Indian County." Dayton said that some of Indian treaty rights have been "ignored" and "trampled upon" in the past.

The exhibit, which was partly funded with Legacy money, has already made 10 stops across the state will continue its journey through the end of 2012."
