The GU Center for America Indian Studies and the GU Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) are co-hosting a showing of the 2012 documentary Dakota 38.
Dakota 38 rider Issac Miller will be in attendance.
Reception: 6:00 p.m.
Screening 6:30 p.m.
This is a film about the Dakota people’s 330 mile ride from Lower Brule, SD to Mankato, MN retracing the ride of their ancestors. Those ancestors arrived in Mankato, MN awaiting their passage from this world to the next.
On Dec. 26, 1862 President Lincoln ordered the hanging of 38 Dakota, which is the largest execution in US History. This journey is an effort to begin the reconciliation and healing of the Dakota people and all people. This year is the 150th anniversary of those events that are still felt today. We feel very privileged to have the opportunity to host the showing.
Thus far the film has received recognition as: Winner – Audience Award – Frozen River Film Festival 2012, and Winner – Special Jury Award – Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival 2012.
