What Does Justice Look Like?

With the 150th anniversary of the Dakota War of 1862 coming next year, it seems appropriate to take a look at events from an Indian point of view.  Thus we will be reading What Does Justice Look Like?: The Struggle for Liberation in Dakota Homeland (2008) by Waziyatawin (Angela Cavender Wilson). This book, by a Dakota historian and scholar, examines the history and relations between her people and the white, European society that displaced them, with some suggested solutions. The book is less than 200 pages and can be had new in paperback for about $18. It is also available for the Kindle reader ($10) and as a Google ebook ($4.50). From the point of view of the History Study Group, I think this sounds pretty good.

    Waziyatawin is a radical Dakota activist and scholar. Some wanted to defend a good portion of what she had to say. Others thought she was more of a problem than a solution. All agreed that she generated a very lively discussion.
