Film: “Dakota 38”

October 14, 2019, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This 2012 documentary follows a group of Native Americans, many direct descendants of 38 Dakota men who were hanged on Dec. 26, 1862, on a 330-mile journey on horseback to the site of the execution. Ordered by President Abraham Lincoln following the Dakota War of 1862, the event was the largest mass-execution in United States History. The film is the story of the journey, the Native and non-Native communities that housed and fed the riders along the way, and the dark history that they are beginning to wipe away. 1 hour, 58 minutes.
