I learned new things from watching the “Dakota Conflict” video that showed many facts, which without doubts have changed my thoughts and perspective about the conflict between Dakota and Euro-Americans. Even though I don’t agree with the way the Dakotas reacted by killing innocent white people, but on the other hand I feel them and understand their situation clearly. It’s hard to see your land get stolen and your children and women get starved without doing anything. Their reaction was manly and pretty normal. One of the quotes from the video that earned my respect was about some Dakotas who said we “want to die like a man, not animal”. I really like people who prefer to die than to live with humiliation. Having started the war and lost, my compassion is still for the Dakotas and Native Americans. They were mistreated in many ways such as the fault treaties that they were forced to sign while they understood neither the language nor its terms. The treaties were greedy based by the U.S. government to buy the land from the Dakotas and give them a limited land, money and food in return. They wanted to convert them from a sovereignty Nation to one that depends on them. They went even further than that by letting the Dakotas give up the life style like their cloths, religion, beliefs and other stuff that means a lot for this tribe while they would have resisted if they were in their situation. This act is the second stage of colonization that is targeting the psychology of the indigenous people.

The boy and man wander south down the road towards an unknown destination, running into murderers, cannibals, burned corpses, fires and ash. Apart from the occasional soda or canned meal, the characters are given no break against the barren and broken remains of the crumbling world. Despite the seemingly…

I found all five of the videos to be very interesting and important this week. With all of them being important, if I had to choose, I would say the least important would have been Crossing the Delaware. I found this one to be the least important because basically it just discussed how George Washington and his Troop crossed a body of water at Christmas. It really did not go much into detail about it other than it was…

Waterlily derives not only from its thoughtful and
lucid analysis of kinship relationships among the Dakota Sioux, but also from the
fundamental ethical lessons it imparts. We should read this book as a primer in the ethical
life, taking its place alongside classic works of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Immanuel Kant,
John Stuart Mill, and others. Waterlily remains an enduring masterpiece of the real
Dakota life—especially the elaborately textured layers of the all-important and allencompassing kinship…
First I would like to define what is a conflict? A conflict is a process that is started when one party or group perceives that another party or group has negatively affected, or is about to, something that the first party or group cares about. This can span to a wide range of possible conflicts that people experience when they are part of an organization. Some examples are differences over interpretations of facts, incompatibility of goals, or disagreements based on behavioral expectations.
