Indian Country

Riders Leave South Dakota to Commemorate Dakota 38
Indian Country 

I know that some of my relatives way back when, thought it would be fine to serve Indians alcohol in exchange for land. Two cousins were captured and when found did not want to go back with their family. That happened in Maine. So I have Indian cousins some where. My 5 great grandparents were captured when they were traveling from point A to point B in the western part of New York and someone paid a ransom to get them back. Then they got captured again but they got away. I know that I am related to everybody and everybody is related to me, we are human.
The pictures make me sad, I think it is important to remember.
