  1. Hi

    Thanks for having this link to the mpr interview.

    I think you have Cathy Wurzor”s name mispelled!!

    Prof. Nichols plays a key role in the upcoming documentary film about the vast and insidious corruption of the the “Indian system” which provoked the U.S. Dakota War. Perhpas you could provide a link to that documentary.

    Thanks, Tom Clarke
