The Relentless Business of Treaties Book ~ Mountain West News Bureau ~ Letters from Home

Wednesday, August 22 – Writer Martin Case joins us for a discussion of his new book, “The Relentless Business of Treaties,” which explores how indigenous lands became private property. Taking Minnesota as a case study, he describes how the individuals behind the treaties shaped them to further their own interests. ~~~ The Mountain West News Bureau was launched earlier this year. It’s a partnership of public media stations that serve Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, and Utah. Here to tell us about the bureau and share some news highlights from the region is managing editor Kate Concannon. ~~~ Letters from Home is a touring group making two stops in North Dakota this week with their newest show, “Voices of Victory.” The group performs in support of veterans featuring music from the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s. Performers Erinn Diaz and Dan Beckmann are our guests.
