This compelling documtnary tells the story of the Dakota 38 + 2 Wokiksuye Horse Ride that started from a dream that Jim Miller, The Dreamer had in 2005. This is a spiritual ride that starts at the Lower Brule reservation in South Dakota, bringing together Native and non-native riders from all over Turtle Island (North America) to ride horseback over 330 miles, arriving at Reconciliation Park in Mankato on December 26th at 10am. Riders are in ceremony as they ride, carrying prayers for healing, for all people to remember the history of the events that unfolded that lead to the mass hanging of 38 Dakota warriors in Mankato at 10am on December 26th, 1862. The ride is to honor the Dakota men, women and children who were held in concentration camps in Fort Snelling and what is now known as Sibley Park and Dakota Wokiksuye Makoce (Land of Memories), before being exiled from Minnesota. This will be the last year of the Dakota 38 + 2 Wokiksuye Horse Ride, and Dakota elders Wilfred Keeble, Staff Carrier and Josette Peltier, Spiritual Leader will be on hand after the screening and the next day in the Center for Inclusive Excellence to share stories and answer questions.
