A Clash of Cultures: Understanding the Dakota War of 1862

On August 17th, 1862, a group of 4 Mdewakaton Dakota boys stole some eggs, and a war began. Although in truth, the seeds of the war had been over 200 years before with the coming of the French Fur traders, followed by the British, and finally, the Americans. In A CLASH OF CULTURES, producers Milt and Jamie Lee look at the war through the lens of history, and the larger context of why war in the first place. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the conflict was not the war between white and red, but between the various factions of Dakota. The two men who epitomized this struggle were Little Crow, a Mdewakaton chief, and Gabriel Renville, a Sissteon farmer. Both played a much larger role in the conflict than most people realize, and it is in understanding their values and motivations that we can see what was really happening with the Dakota People and what would ultimately become of the tribe, even to this day.
