Description

"I was taught that to know who we are, we need to know WHERE we are. Too many books treat Indigenous presence as a prelude that ends when white people arrive. Tom Weber's book starts with the Indigenous and builds a complex, truer story of Bde Ota Otuŋwe (Minneapolis). This tapestry of people, strikes, championships, immigration, renewal, disasters, and triumphs provides a fascinating read about WHERE we are." Mona Smith (Sisseton-Wahpeton Dakota), Allies: media/art "Tom Weber unmasks a history of duplicitous relationships and policies that formed the wretched underbelly beneath the glory of Minneapolis. He does what many choose not to do: look at and connect the decisions that continue to maintain shameful race-based inequality." Al McFarlane, editor in chief, Insight News "Tom Weber provides a fresh, inclusive, and timely look at the people and events that continue to shape Minneapolis. Playing with chronology, he artfully melds often-told stories with lesser-known ones. This book helps us understand the paradox of a proud city with a sterling reputation that nevertheless struggles with basic issues of equity for its citizens." John Crippen, executive director, Hennepin History Museum
