Why Treaties Matter Exhibit and Events

Saturday, October 16, 2021

The exhibit, made in partnership between the Minnesota Humanities Center, the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council, and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, explores relationships between Dakota and Ojibwe Indian Nations and the U.S. government in this place we now call Minnesota. Through images, text, and video, learn how treaties affected the lands and lifeways of the indigenous peoples of this place, and why these binding agreements between nations still matter today.

Exhibit runs September 9 to October 17.

Monday through Wednesday: 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Thursday and Friday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: noon to 4 p.m.


It is free and open to the public.
