Weekend watch: Clifford Canku and Michael Simon book discussion


After weather kept them away from a previously scheduled discussion of their book, “The Dakota Prisoner of War Letters: Dakota Kaskapi Okicize Wowapi,” the men behind the collection, Clifford Canku and Michael Simon, are finally able to make it to Zandbroz Variety, 420 Broadway, Fargo, for a discussion tonight.

The book compiles letters from Indian prisoners after the Dakota War of 1862 as they sought contact with families and tribal members over the next three years. The documents frame an interesting and often overlooked period in our region’s history. This event starts at 6:30 and is free. (701) 239-4729
