On Dec. 26, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln’s order to hang 38 Dakota men was carried out. This was the largest execution in United States history. “Dakota 38,” produced by Smooth Feather Productions, tells the story of Jim Miller, a Vietnam veteran and spiritual leader who rode his horse from Lower Brule, SD, to Mankato, MN, to honor those executed there. Descendants of the Dakota 38 learned of Miller’s plan to retrace the 330-mile route and joined him on the journey through incredible physical hardships. Upon their arrival, the riders’ efforts were recognized by Mankato residents furthering the understanding and reconciliation between native and white populations.
