Waterbuster – Free Film – Thursday, December 10

Waterbuster is a documentary film about a subject important to North Dakota and North Dakotans.  When the Garrison Dam was constructed on the Missouri River in the 1950s, many people from the Mandan-Hidatasa-Arikara Nation were displaced when their homelands were submerged.  This film tells that story.
