Minnesota News Network reported a story this morning that a march and rally are planned for this afternoon, and Henry Boucha of Warroad described where the term “redskin” originated.
Boucha told MNN, “There was a bounty on the Indians and scalps were worth quite a bit of money, for men, women and children…When the blood ran down their faces, they called them redskins.”
Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, of the White Earth Nation, is expected to speak at the rally.
Selma May, on the phone, told this station that the trip is meant to be a positive experience for Red Lake community members, not as a political action.
