BISMARCK, N.D. _ North Dakota state Sen. Raymon Holmberg, R-Grand Forks, wears a quilt given to him in the North Dakota Capitol’s Memorial Hall in Bismarck, N.D., on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013, as part of a ceremony held to apologize to Holmberg for the slaying of his great-great grandfather in Minnesota during the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862. Holmberg said his great-great grandfather, Gulbrand Palmeson, had been fishing when he was attacked by a group of Dakota Indians during the war, which broke out in part because of Indian anger about broken treaties, the encroachment of white settlers on their homelands and the withholding of food by government agents during a tough winter.
