This 15-minute video, produced by the National Museum of the American Indian, serves as a companion piece to "Why Treaties Matter - Self Government in the Dakota and Ojibwe Nations," a travelling exhibit on treaties between Dakota and Ojibwe people and the U.S. The film introduces the themes of the exhibit: that tribal governments exercise indigenous sovereignty today, and that indigenous sovereignty was not given in treaties, but retained in treaties.
