Our guest today is Jim Miller. The ride was started after Jim Miller had a vision of the 38 Dakota men being hanged in 2005. Miller, a Vietnam veteran said:

“it’s one of those dreams that bothers you night and day,” in the film DAKOTA 38 – released in 2012. “We can’t blame the wasi’chus anymore. We’re doing it to ourselves. We’re selling drugs. We’re killing our own people. That’s what this ride is about, is healing.”
