Saturday’s forum will be at 7 p.m. at the Watford City High School media center.
Richard Rothaus, CEO of Trefoil Cultural and Environmental, and research associate of the NDSU center, is the lead scholar for the program series.

The U.S.-Dakota War of 1862-64, which began with violence in Minnesota in 1862, moved into Dakota Territory with the siege of Fort Abercrombie in 1862.
It extended onto the Dakota plains in 1863-64. Actions at Whitestone Hill in 1863 and Killdeer Mountain in 1864 are the best-known events in a war that involved not only all Dakota peoples, but also the western Lakota, as well as the citizens and armed forces of the territory and nation.
