The largest mass execution in U.S. history occurred 148 years ago, when 38 Dakota warriors were hanged from a single scaffold in Mankato. The shock waves of that mass execution still reverberate today among the Dakota people. This film remembers the 38, and also a group of Dakota who ride on horseback each year at this time to Mankato to commemorate the executions of December 26, 1862.
