Description

In the spring of 2005, Jim Miller, a Native spiritual leader and Vietnam veteran, found himself in a dream riding on horseback across the great plains of South Dakota. Just before he awoke, he arrived at a riverbank in Minnesota and saw 38 of his Dakota ancestors hanged. At the time, Jim knew nothing of the largest mass execution in United States history, ordered by Abraham Lincoln on December 26, 1862. 

Now, four years later, embracing the message of the dream, Jim and a group of riders retrace the 330-mile route of his dream on horseback from Lower Brule, South Dakota to Mankato, Minnesota to arrive at the hanging site on the anniversary of the execution. 

Join Jim and Alberta in their mission to spread their message of love and reconciliation during a screening of this groundbreaking and heartfelt documentary here in Albuquerque. Monetary donations will be gladly accepted and will go towards Jim's efforts to bring the Dakota 38 to communities across the country.

Followed by the film will be Q & A with guests and organizers form South Dakota.
