Learning Event presented by Mniluzahan Okolakiciyapi Ambassadors in partnership with the Mayor of Rapid City
May 4, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
“An Inconvenient Truth: The History Behind Sioux San Lands and West Rapid City”
Please join Mniluzahan Okolakiciyapi Ambassadors for the FIRST public presentation of this history!
Rapid City continues to struggle with it’s relationship between the Native and Non-Native communities. One of the reasons, is lack of understanding about the recent history of the Rapid City Boarding School and it’s lands. These lands run from Mountain View Road on the east to Canyon Lake Park, including Stevens High School, West Middle School, Canyon Lake Elementary School, Sioux Park, the National Guard range, churches and housing.
That history continues to shape the present for many in the community. This project will fundamentally reshape the way Rapid City residents understand each other, and provide a platform of truth to begin some healing.
Presented by Heather Dawn Thompson and Kibbe Conti.
Sponsored by the Mniluzahan Okolakiciyapi Ambassadors in partnership with the Mayor of Rapid City.
