  •  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.

GoodShield Aguilar is of Oglala lakota and Pasqua Yaqui origin. he has been a visual artist as long as he can remember, but discovered music as a teenager and he has made music and art a grounding point from which cultural identity could be expressed and environmental causes could be addressed, particularly with the yellowstone Buffalo (www.buffalofieldcampaign.org). Aside from playing as a solo acoustic artist, beating a driving bass drum while strumming a guitar and singing original song with native “chants” and spoken word, he can also be seen around the country (and recently, across the great pond) with drummer, Johnnie Martinez and flautist, Mignon Geli. In this instrumental arrangement, they can range from Funk, Rock, Reggae, Latin Soul and anywhere in between the 7 generations….
