Bryon interviews Attorney Peter Capossela, author of The Land Along the River: The Ongoing Saga Of The Sioux Land Claim, 1851-2012. Available for purchase at: http://www.mariahpress.com/products-page/books/the-land-along-the-river/
The publication of Peter Capossela’s account of the Governor William Janklow’s and Senator Thomas Daschle’s successful theft of Sioux Nation Treaty Lands along the Missouri River must be told.
Its importance lies with the fact that extreme treachery was employed to divide the Sioux Nation and its treaty water position.
The book will chronicle those efforts from its beginning to the successful transfer of our lands to the State of South Dakota. The book will also remind tribal citizens to use every measure possible to protect our water.
Michael Her Many Horses, Oglala Sioux Tribal Council
