Celia Espinoza, Mexican Mestiza. She has been a coordinator with Freshet since June 2017 and became involved with Standing Rock as an organizer in my hometown in Idaho in September of 2016. We made two trips with donations to Oceti Sakowin in November and December. This movement changed my life in many ways so I am grateful to be able to reciprocate that.

- Jimmy Hallum, a Dakota 38 rider shared this story with us. 78 winters old walked from Lower Brule, SD to Ft Thompson, SD.today . It is right around 14 miles. To honor the Dakota 38 and the 2 who were later drugged, kidnapped and later hanged. The grandmothers who suffered at Crow Creek. He said his grandfather was part of the first minnesota calvary from 1858 to 1864 that escorted the dakota out of minnesota. He was also present at the execution at Mahkahtoe or blue earth. He said he wanted to walk because his grandfather rode horseback while the Dakota walked in front. So he wanted to walk behind while the Dakota rode back into Minnesota. It was cold today but he also said the Dakota really suffered at the hands of the white man back then. I want to say nina pidamiya to him for what he did today. We need more like him. Thank you Jacob Farmer for being a human being.
