What brought about the hanging of the 38 Sioux Indians in Minnesota December 26, 1862 was the failure "again" of the U.S. Government to honor its treaties with Indian Nations. Indians were not given the money or food set forth to them for signing a treaty to turn over more than a million acres of their land and be forced to live on a reservation. #NoDAPL #StandingRock
