Viviana lived a quiet life in the city, studying and doing everything possible to ensure she was accepted into a good college. She never thought much about who she was or where she came from but all of that will change when her father dies in the line of duty and she is asked to do something she never thought imaginable, participate in the annual Dakota 38+2 Ride. It was something that absolutely terrified her but with the encouragement of her uncle and the guidance of her new friend, Dre, she will discover something within her she never knew existed. She will learn that culture and tradition live within one’s heart and cannot be easily forgotten. Our spirit remembers our ancestors and beckons us to them, even if we are reluctant to go. Thirty Eight is a story of acceptance and love while finding one’s way back home.

While on the Dakota 38 Ride I took several videos including many of the riders coming into Mankato on December 25th, 2015. I then translated those videos into the first trailer for Thirty Eight. Now granted I am not an expert in this area but I do hope that you like what I put together.
Trailer for the novel ‘Thirty Eight’ by Tawa Witko and Deanna Milda, available now on Amazon and other online retailers.
In addition to the interviews and the trailer I am proud to premiere this beautiful illustration of Viviana and Eagle Bear done by Winyan Press Illustrator, Alex Marin. Thank you so much Alex. This picture is absolutely BREATHTAKING!!!
