With the push of a few buttons Hunter finds himself walking on a forest path along with four Dakota Sioux. Like them, he is dressed in elkskin leggings and a cotton shirt, carrying a rifle. They come to a break in the trees. A farmhouse stands about 500 metres away. That’s where the massacring begins.

Hunter travels to the event that is said to have begun the Dakota Sioux Uprising of 1862. Using TimeTraveller™’s Intelligent Agent mode, he becomes part of a Dakota hunting party. For the first time in his life, he feels part of a team.
