Discussion: Mankato Hangings an Uneasy Topic for Minnesota Schools

This event, however, has not been taught on an extensive basis within schools in Minnesota. Although discussion of war between the federal government and Dakota Indians is included as part of sixth grade curriculum, the Mankato hangings are often excluded from the discussion.
