BIEWEN: The quality of the teaching varies.

Monroe Elementary [school] is just across the river from hanging site. Patricia Hammond is prepping her third grad class for the 'pow-wow.' I asked her how she presents the War of 1862, standing with her in front of her students.

HAMMOND: We just alked about, like, a conflict is a disagreement. And we talked how the Dakota indians didn't know how to solve their conflicts, and the only way they knew how to solve their disagreements was to fight, which we know, we don't fight when we solve our conflicts. We use our words, but they, that was their only way that they knew how to solve a conflict. They fought. And so the white settlers needed to fight back to protect themselves. And then we talked, people were killed.
