We celebrate Thanksgiving without really understanding the history about what we are told we are celebrating.
Please support our dedicated Dakota Lakota tribal members doing the 38-2 Memorial Ride this year.

The Dakota 38+2 Reconciliation Ride began in 2005 and has continued every year to promote reconciliation between American Indians and non-Native People. It is a prayer in the dead of cold, which is a sacrifice the Dakota riders make for reconciliation and healing. To honor the 38 Dakota Warriors hung in 1862 and two more 1864.
Horseback riders, runners and supporters alike make the 330-mile journey from Lower Brule, South Dakota to Mankato, Minnesota during the dead of winter.
