38 Dakota honored amid bitterly cold conditions


December 27, 2017

MANKATO — The coldest Dec. 26 in more than 20 years didn't stop Dakota riders and runners and a large crowd of onlookers from memorializing the 38 Dakota executed in Mankato in 1862 and continuing the reconciliation effort of today.

"We're here for the dream, the message — healing, reconciliation, cultural diversity," said Wilford Keeble, who for the third year was the staff carrier. He and other Dakota spoke in Dakota and English at Reconciliation Park on Tuesday morning in downtown Mankato.
