Sioux Indians of the Upper Sioux Agency

Minnesota Sioux Indians

The Sioux Indian war of 1862 took place in the countryside near my childhood home and near Echo & Wood Lake, Minnesota.

This lovely mural is in the Upper Sioux Agency museum on Highway 67 between Echo and Granite Falls and along the Minnesota River.

One of my favorite teachers in Echo high school was Mrs. Blue, the Indian Chief's wife from Granite Falls. She somehow convinced me to partake in her famous one act plays....how did she ever convince me I could act?? We had a grand time touring and competing with local schools. I remember we always had thought-provoking conversations on those trips...that is probably the main reason I enjoyed it all so much. This special lady made a lasting impression on me.

My father often would find tomahawks in our pasture when plowing up virgin grasslands. It was always so thrilling for me to think of these days so long ago when native Americans lived and roamed in Minnesota.
