12:00-12:15 p.m CT (11:00-11:15 am MT) Session by Vickie Mix, South Dakota State University Mix-200.jpg
The Great Plains provided a rich environment for the first people in South Dakota. Primary resources from libraries, archaeologists, explorers and the United States Government document the life and history of American Indians before and after the westward expansion into the territory now known as South Dakota. The Plains people numbered many nomadic and semi-sedentary groups occupying and traversing land from Texas to Canada. This session highlights information readily available to educators for the teaching of South Dakota American Indian culture and history.
