“This was the most interesting and inspiring thing I have ever witnessed. I saw this at The Tree of
Healing Conference in Spokane, Washington on June 4, 2010. Brought me to tears many times.”
3 Minute Scene from “Dakota 38” from Smooth Feather on Vimeo.
From Silas Hagerty: “In the spring of 2005, Lakota Spiritual Leader Jim Miller had a dream where he rode 330 miles on horseback.He eventually came to a river bank in Mankato Minnesota where he saw 38 of his own ancestors hanged. Jim soon discovered that he had dreamt of the largest mass hanging in United States history ordered by Abraham Lincoln in 1862. In December of 2008, Jim and many others retraced the route of his dream on horseback as a means of bringing healing and reconciliation to all. “DAKOTA 38″ is a feature length documentary film by Smooth Feather Productions which tells the story of this 330 mile journey.”
