30th Annual Lakota Omniciye Pow Wow draws thousands

Posted:

Students in the Native American Club at Black Hills State University want to bring people together.
 
In observance of American Indian Awareness Week, the club held a Pow Wow, and worked to promote their message.

Sunday marks the final day of the 30th Annual Lakota Omniciye Pow Wow.

This past week a number of speakers talked to students about unity.
 
"We're coming home because the Black Hills do mean a lot to the Lakota people that are local. It gives them a beautiful area to be in and to come to the school here it feels awesome as a student to have all friends and family come up here and share it with you because we work all year to do it," says Rilda Means, Lakota Omniciye President.

The meeting brings more than 3,000 native and non-native people from the 5-state area.
