Hello, Well as I am
making this page up on December 26th 2013, the Riders will be getting
ready to wind their way into Mankato for Ceremony. I am thinking of
them and praying for the 38 + 2 Dakota men who were hung in 1862 /64.
This page will have extras in it that I wasn't able to add to the regular
web pages, there were many photos taken by various people and on here
I will try to add links to them so you can go and see them. Some people
also took quick video shots of the Riders as well so I will add those
If you have any
you would like to add please contact me via the group and I will put
them on this page. Pidamiya, Thanks!

Indian Boarding Schools (Historical and Intergenerational Trauma,)
- Haskell Indian Nations University Remembrance
In the cemetery, stand 103 old army-issue, unpolished marble headstones
that mark the death of young Native people who died between 1885
and 1913. Most of those died at about ten years of age. The youngest
and first death was Harry White Wolf who died
at 6 months old. As one walks among the unnaturally serene stones,
an image that stays with you is not only the names and brief lifespan
of these young people, but that in this small half-acre space,
thirty-seven tribes are represented. Ponca lies next to Pawnee
and Miami next to Navajo.
above is an excerpt from the work of Stephen A. Colmant, MA,

intergenerational trauma in native communities. This documentary
