First book on Red Lake history, 'Warrior Nation,' released
BEMIDJI—Since European settlers arrived on the eastern shores of what became the United States, land borders have been drawn, people moved and communities erased. Centuries have passed and the Red Lake Nation, located in Northwestern Minnesota, has stood solid, unyielding and with little of its story known by the outside world. Anton Treuer's book "Warrior Nation: A History of the Red Lake Ojibwe," sheds light on what has been left in the dark.
"Researchwise it's very different from a lot of books," Treuer said. "It covers the entire history of the band from the Battle River fight in 1760 to present."
