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 too.


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!

in the spirit of celebrating Dakota literature that contributes to the re-writing of history I will post a few articles with themes related to U.S Dakota relations examined by law students and professors alike... this first one is from Angelique Eagle Woman SWO member.

Indian Boarding Schools (Historical and Intergenerational Trauma,)

Video - 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.

The above is an excerpt from the work of Stephen A. Colmant, MA, LPC, Lahoma Shultz, MS, LPC (Creek Seminole) and Andrea
Dudley, MA (Cherokee), titled Haskell Cemetery: A Symbol for Healing and Growt

Video - The Wellbriety Journey to Forgiveness

Documentary on the Abuses of the Indian Boarding Schools. Discusses the intergenerational trauma in native communities. This documentary is over an hour long, and gives information about how these Historical and Intergenerational Traumas can be healed. It is a MUST SEE. (Gloria)

The "Wellbriety Movement: Journey of Forgiveness" is now available on Youtube, www.whitebison.org , or free on DVD. Email info@whitebison.org for DVD, include mailing address.

There is no charge for this DVD. It is hoped that it will be shared by everyone who sees it.
