An Arikara woman/portrait by Edward Curtis
(1930 - 2003)

      A Mandan/Hidatsa Indian woman who, like thousands of other Indians on the upper Missouri River, lost her home and farm to the dams built under the Pick-Sloan Plan in the 1950s and 60s.  http://hnn.us/node/139524

      Fifty years later, Congress would finally admit that the condemnation of Indian lands to make was for Pick-Sloan dams had been an unconstitutional taking of their treaty-protected homelands.
