Updates from the Chief Big Foot Memorial Reunion Ride – Day 1& 2

Updates from the Chief Big Foot Memorial Reunion Ride – Bridger, SD and Four Corners, SD

Tuesday 12/22 the riders, walkers and runners gather for Ceremony, Blessings and Pledges for the Ride, Riders and Walkers.

 
Daniel, Afraid of Hawk who was with us on the 1990 ride, now 95yrs young joined to bless the ride the night before they circled and Gathered.

Daniel is an original Lakota cowboy. His father survived the massacre. Strong as a bull – he was adamant about being a part of this year’s ride festivities. All of us could learn about being a loving parent and friend from Daniel. 

Here are pictures of Daniel on the 1990 ride, and at Bridger, SD for the start of the Ride, and Blessing.
