Dakota 38--then and now
December 21, 2009 - Karin Elton
I took a photo of the three Dakota 38 riders Saturday afternoon as they headed to Running’s parking lot for a break. They had ridden horses from Russell as part of the annual Dakota 38 Memorial Ride which traces the route the Dakota were forced to march in 1862.
I talked to one of the organizers and he said they didn’t have as many horses or money this year. It’s so sad and noble what they are doing on so little. One of the riders was a white guy from Venice Beach, Calif. He was a long way from home and the weather was slightly different from what he is used to. He has a Web site called Can-do.org for humanitarian causes. A cameraman was shooting footage for live streaming to the Web site. The guy, Eric Klein, said the Web site could be viewed by people in 57 countries.
