South Dakota PK-12 teachers and students studying to be teachers will have an opportunity to earn undergraduate or graduate credit through Augustana University by participating in a 5-day field trip style Teachers Institute workshop which will delve into the history and culture of the Lakota people in South Dakota, including how white settlement impacted them then and now. The class, EDUC 359/559 Lakota History and Culture: The Intersection of Indigenous Life and White Settlement, is based in rural Gregory County, SD near the Milk’s Camp Community, and will include visits to historic government sites including Fort Randall chapel, the Whetstone Agency site, 1958 treaty signing site, and day schools, as well as tribal museums, churches, and a university. Travel to the Yankton Sioux Reservation and the Rosebud Reservation will also be included, with tours of the historic churches, cemeteries, and pow wow grounds of Milk’s Camp, the oldest continuous community in the area.
Scholars: Dr. Michael L. Lawson; Ronette Rumpca; Geraldine Goes in Center; Dr. Brad Tennant; Terry Grey; Mike Marshall; and Emmett Kotrba.
