A Film Night in support of the Great Sioux Nation
December 10, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm UTC-6
Join folks from Roaring Fork Valley Circle and RIVER STANDS WITH ROCK for an evening of informative films related to history and current events that are affecting the Great Sioux Nation.
Featured during the evening program are:
Tatanka: Story of the Buffalo with Kevin Costner
The Whole World is Watching – film preview from http://www.upliftconnect.com
Chris Peters (Pohlik-lah/Karuk) – “Enduring Impact of the Doctrine of Discovery”
Steven Newcomb’s poem “Original Nations Anthem” set to images.
FEATURE FILM: Dakota 38, produced by Smooth Feather Productions, is an impeccably produced high-definition feature-length film that tells the story of Jim Miller, a Vietnam veteran and spiritual leader, who finally came to believe that a dream he had was a message from the Creator. Unable to ignore the calling, Miller resolutely determined that he must live his dream and ride his horse east from Lower Brule, S.D. to Mankato, Minnesota where the day after Christmas, Dec. 26, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln had ordered the largest execution in United States history — the hanging of 38 Dakota (Sioux) men. (For Adult Audience.)
The 2016 Dakota 38 + 2 ride starts December 10th from South Brule, South Dakota. You can follow the ride at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1582160108701340/
