Virtual Author Event: The Sandy Lake Tragedy of 1850

The Octagon House Museum will host author and historian, Colin Mustful, for a virtual lecture and reading. Mustful will be talking about the Sandy Lake Tragedy of 1850, a relatively unknown historical event that left 400 Ojibwe dead in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin because of the negligence and ill-intents of U.S. government officials. Mustful will be reading an excerpt from his novel, Resisting Removal, and inviting questions and discussion from the audience.

To support local museums and historical societies during the forced shutdown, Mustful will be donating the proceeds of all book sales purchased through the author’s online store at to the Octagon House Museum.
