Lakota Lands & Identities for Rapid City Area Schools: Day 2

Tuesday, June 15, 2021

Today was Anpetu Nunpa, Day Two, Tuesday, of our five-day Lakota Lands & Identities “classroom on wheels.” This morning we visited Mato Paha (Bear Butte) where Jim Jandreau, the Manager of Bear Butte State Park, shared personal experiences and encouraged us to empathize with all of the students we strive to educate. After lunch, Roger Broer, a renowned artist, led us to Pe Sla, one of the sacred sites that Amos Bad Heart Bull depicted on his early 1900s drawing of the Black Hills. In the photo above, Roger is giving an orientation near Pe Sla. Click here to read about Day 1.
