The U.S. Indian Office establishes a reservation for the Santee Dakota—who are facing starvation at Crow Creek—at the mouth of the Niobrara River in Nebraska. Pardoned prisoners from the military prison in Davenport, Iowa, join the Crow Creek survivors in this new location.*
Jesus, will You intervene in this event? Will You forgive any of the judgments offensive to You in this event? Whether from Santees, Dakotas, Minnesotans, South Dakotans, Iowans,or Nebraskans; all our opprobrious conduct was against You. Will You have mercy on these parties in this moment as You will forgive our contemptuous actions in the future? Will You transform these relationships? Will You bring chesed into our present?
