Documentary Movie

Sunday, July 23rd-7PM

State Theater

35 Washington Ave. E

Hutchinson, MN 55350

Tickets-$10 for Adults-$5 for Kids under 12 yrs.

The Museum is excited to have Mark Diedrich and Bill Weiss back for a second showing of “Little Crow and the Dakota War”, their very successful documentary that explores the life of the Dakota Warrior during the U.S. Dakota War of 1862. The Museum was lucky enough to feature the film’s premier when it first came out, with standing room only at the Historical Society, but this time, the State Theater has donated the use of the theater to give guests the full movie experience!

The film has been featured on PBS and shown all over the region, with much success.  Mark and Bill will both be available to give a short talk about the making of the film and the impact that it has had on the legacy of Little Crow, the Dakota people and the history of the 1862 war that was fought here in McLeod County and Minnesota.  All ticket proceeds will go to help support the Museum’s Mission to preserve McLeod County’s History, with all popcorn and pop sales to the State Theater.  The Museum will be preselling tickets, with limited tickets at the door.  See you at the Movies this Sunday, July 23rd!

    I teach the Dakota Ear in my US history class in Fosston, MN. Years ago I took a trip to Dakota War sites in a TAH group of history teachers. How do I view this documentary? I would purchase it for my classroom as well. Thanks
