On the day after Christmas in 1862, 38 Native Americans were lead out to the gallows to meet their Creator. Sadly, it was our President Lincoln who issued this executive order. A scar that is forever on the face of America.
As an effort to bring closure to this horrible execution, The Dakota Unity Riders each and every year make their pilgrimage on horses to the hanging site at Fort Snelling in Menkato, Minnesota. Along with this 300 mile plus journey, women also walk what is called the Trail of Tears road to Menkato, where they cry Sacred Tears for their men gone to The Spirit Beyond all Understanding.
The Sacred Riders have brought about a great sense of healing and hope to the area around Menkato, and now they are reaching out across the United States to bring Healing and hope to our entire country. The restorative energy of these horses and riders will be felt this summer as they prepare to embark on the Longest Ride.
This journey will bring them into New York and ultimately, Washington DC. The total distance covered will be over 10 times longer than ever achieved. Truly the Creator will be in the wind and upon the water and land, as these Spiritual Warriors take to the Cause of Unity among all peoples, and masterful healing for all living relatives of Planet Earth.
