The GU Center for America Indian Studies and the GU Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) are co-hosting a screening of the 2012 documentary. It is a film about the Dakota people’s 330 mile ride from Lower Brule, SD to Mankato, Minn., retracing the ride of their ancestors. Those ancestors arrived in Mankato, awaiting their passage from this world to the next. On Dec. 26, 1862, President Lincoln ordered the hanging of 38 Dakota, which is the largest execution in U.S. History. This journey is an effort to begin the reconciliation and healing of the Dakota people and all people. Isaac Miller, one of the Dakota 38 Riders from the film, will discuss the film.
