On August 17, 1862 a group of four young Dakota men on a hunting expedition killed five settlers who lived along the Minnesota river in what is now southwest Minnesota…and a war began. This week marks the 50th anniversary of this historical conflict. A Clash of Cultures: The 1862 Dakota War is a production of ampers-Diverse Radio for Minnesota Communities. Join ampers stations across Minnesota for this 60 minute documentary and more.
