Today we arrived the American Legion in Pipestone, Minnesota to help serve breakfast to the riders.Â It was amazing to see all the people.Â Isaiah Miller from Pine Ridge said “My father Jim Miller had a dream and he is the one holding the staff.”Â Isaiah is from Pine Ridge.Â The Lower Sioux Tribal Police have been helping provide a safe escort for the horses.Â My daughter Kari helped serve Lunch at the Stephanie and Rich DeRuyter farm located in Ruthton, Minnesota.Â The farm provided a
warm place to stop between Pipestone and Russell, Minnesota.Â Tonight the riders will be at the town hall in Russell, Minnesota.Â Sarah Weston from Flandreau, SD is working with the non-profit group doing a documentary on the ride.Â One of the riders family’s from South Dakota went home early because their grandfather died. He apparently froze to death on the reservation because of lack of heat sources. Please keep that family in your prayers.Â Many of the families of home-schooled children help provide meals in Ruthton, Minnesota Today.Â Also Smooth Feather Productions Director Silas Hagerty was excited to learn that a woman named Smooth Feather had served coffee in Pipestone, Minnesota and would love to find her or anyone with the same name as his production company.
