Presentation: Riggs and the Treaty of Traverse des Sioux

Missionary Stephen Riggs played a prominent role in the negotiation and signing of the treaties that opened the Minnesota Territory to a flood of immigrant-settlers. His life-long vocation as a Christian missionary and his work to develop a written Dakota language are still significant today. Howard J. Vogel is Professor Emeritus at Hamline University School of Law, where he teaches Restorative Justice in the Dispute Resolution Institute. House tours at 1:30 and 3:30 pm.
