Karen V. Hansen reads from "Encounter on the Great Plains"

Saturday, Nov 9, 2013 4:00p
Mrs. Dalloway's Berkeley, CA

In 1904, the first Scandinavian settlers moved onto the Spirit Lake Dakota Indian Reservation. These land-hungry immigrants struggled against severe poverty, often becoming the sharecropping tenants of Dakota landowners. Yet by 1929 Scandinavians owned more reservation land than their Dakota neighbors.
Hansen brings together two dominant processes in American history: the unceasing migration of newcomers to North America, and the dispossession of indigenous peoples who inhabited the continent.
